During the 2022-23 season, the KSO celebrates its 28th consecutive year offering free education programs to students and schools throughout NKY and Greater Cincinnati.

The orchestra alternates the programs “Getting to Know You” (an introduction to instruments of the orchestra) with “Back in My Day” (the history of the orchestra and its music). This year’s introduction of the instruments program, for grades 3 -6, will be held at 7Hills Church in Florence, KY where students may attend in-person at 10:00 a.m. on either Tuesday, September 20 or Wednesday, September 21, 2022 or classes may register to attend via our live stream.  The KSO will make the concert available virtually for those unable to attend the livestream.  Both remain free, but registration is required.  When registering please indicate whether you’ll be attending in-person or virtually.

“Rags to Riches” (February 22, 2022 – 9:30 & 11 am) is an in-person and live-streamed program for grades 6-12 designed to coincide with Black History Month to trace the roots of America’s popular musical heritage (ragtime, blues and early jazz from 1898 to 1933). The program highlights composers with Cincinnati connections.  Admission is free, but registration is required.  Classes may register to attend via our live stream or in person at a location to been announced.
