Formally established in 1935, the KSO is the oldest continually performing symphony orchestra in the Southeast. Now almost 90 years later, the KSO consists of 80 professional musicians, and performs 300 programs throughout the region each season, reaching audiences of more than 200,000 people. The KSO continues to develop and sustain a symphony orchestra of the highest artistic standards to reach East Tennessee audiences with excellent musical performance and education programs.
