Together, we can continue to provide memorable experiences that welcome and entertain your family, friends and neighbors with great music and imaginative themes — live and virtually.

Your support is needed now more than ever. Until Dec. 31st your gift could have 2x or 3x the impact, thanks to a generous matching grant.

No gift is too small, and your support will have an immediate impact by creating unique and engaging performances for our region in 2023.  Your investment in the KSO counts, whether in the concert hall, at area schools, or in the park. Give today and help keep the music playing throughout our community.
