The Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra is a nonprofit community orchestra which provides a place for area musicians to use their talents in an orchestral setting. The orchestra consists of professional, student, and dedicated amateur musicians. It began informally in 1976 and now engages in weekly rehearsals and an annual series of concerts.
At times, its programs are enhanced by including guest conductors and soloists from the region and beyond. The orchestra’s plans and policies are established by the Music Director and a Board of Directors composed of citizens from the community.
