2019 - 2020
Season

Dear KSO patrons, the recent local COVID-19 SIP order now extended through May 31 officially requires us to sadly cancel the remainder of the 2019 - 20 Season. We are of course greatly disappointed to not be able to perform and share the great music we had planned for the April and June concerts. I will be re-scheduling that repertoire and other exciting works for the programs in the coming season, and we very much hope to be back with you in the Fall. In the meantime, thank you so much for your continued support this season and please stay safe and healthy during these very challenging times. 

With all best wishes,

Geoffrey Gallegos, Music Director & Conductor
