2022-2023 Season

Celebrating Community

Celebrate our vibrant community with the KSO!

The theme for the 2022/2023 season of the Kenosha Symphony is “Celebrating Community.”  The KSO has been an important part of the Kenosha community since 1940. We invite you to be a part of our exciting season. The Symphony is reaching out to portions of our community that have not typically had opportunities to connect with a fine professional orchestra.

Ghosts and goblins of all ages are invited to this spooktacular performance. The crisp fall air beckons you to grab your broom as we soar through a night of Spooky Tales.  A Night on Bald Mountain, the haunting Danse macabre, classic Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and more will be enjoyed by those young and young at heart. 

Gather friends, family, and neighbors to celebrate the season’s many joys. KSO’s annual holiday concert, supported by Snap-on Incorporated, will ignite your holiday spirit. We once again feature the popular dancers from the Kenosha Academy of Performing Arts to bring Nutcracker selections to life. Other holiday favorites include A Christmas Festival and Christmas Singalong!

Kenosha Symphony welcomes back to the stage internationally renowned violinist Yang Liu to perform Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G Minor. Mr. Liu last performed with the Kenosha Symphony strings on our live-streamed concert in October 2020. The program opens heroically with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and concludes with Mendelssohn’s beautifully romantic Scottish Symphony.
