Performing some of the best music ever created in a live concert setting is at the heart of what the Kingston Symphony does, and we do it for you! Our purpose is to make a connection, elicit an emotional response, and show you an outstanding time out on the town.
The Kingston Symphony's 2018-2019 season promises a program of music that embodies passion and brilliance, featuring outstanding guest artists.
At the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, our Masterworks Series continues to exemplify edge-of-your-seat orchestral excellence. This series will feature Orff’s legendary Carmina Burana, Brahms’ powerful Symphony No. 1, Beethoven’s beloved Violin Concerto, Rodrigo’s intimate Concierto de Aranjuez, a composer festival featuring three Haydn symphonies, and much more. We welcome world-class soloists to our stage including violinist Jessica Linnebach, cellist Joseph Johnson, and guitarist Drew Henderson, to name just a few.
Our Pops Series at the Grand Theatre, we have three innovative, imaginative, and fun concerts that fit all musical tastes. We start the series off with Pierre Schryer, one of Canada’s leading traditional fiddlers, in an evening of Canadian Celtic roots music. Next, we celebrate the remarkable life of Gene Kelly with his widow and biographer Patricia Ward Kelly. This program features classic scenes from Mr. Kelly’s movies with the orchestra performing the soundtrack live. We close the season with the ultimate tribute to the musical legacy of Chicago with the dynamic, studio-tight powerhouse Brass Transit.
