Kenosha Symphony Orchestra

723 58th Street #301
Kenosha, WI 53143



The Kenosha Symphony Association exists to engage, educate, inspire and enhance the cultural environment of Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois through the performance and awareness of symphonic repertoire.


Since 1940, the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra has been a cultural cornerstone of southeastern Wisconsin, and has entertained and educated thousands of music enthusiasts and local school children. The KSO was formed by the Department of Public Recreation - Kenosha Board of Education, with the support of community organizations in 1940; its first concert was performed in 1941. Since then, the orchestra has grown in number and skill through the high standards of its music directors, as well as the management offered by its organizational unit, the Kenosha Symphony Association, Inc. The KSA is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to maintain and operate an orchestra comprised of musicians capable of providing symphonic music for the education and enjoyment of citizens of the area; to arrange for and implement performances and to publicize such performances to the public; and to enhance the quality of life and civic pride throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.

The Kenosha Symphony Association strives for excellence in our music selection, performances, and our outreach to Kenosha families, and we endeavor to make quality music a part of our community. One of our main missions is to provide a bridge between the community and the arts. We believe that the Symphony in Kenosha is the gateway to expanding a base of support for the arts in the area.

Each year, the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra performs a series of four symphonic concerts, as well as two free youth concerts for Fifth Grade students from throughout Kenosha County.
