A Special Announcement
The Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra regrets to announce the cancellation of our “Springtime in Vienna” concert, scheduled for May 2, in accordance with the statewide mandate against large gatherings. Additionally, the Northern Illinois University Music Building, where the KSO rehearses and performs, is closed to the public in response to the growing concern around the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
All season ticket holders will be contacted regarding their May 2 tickets.
Community support today is more important than ever. As a nonprofit arts organization, the orchestra relies on our patrons. That has never been more true than during this time of event closures as our community works together to reduce the spread of the virus.
Please consider the role music plays in your life and remember to support the KSO on May 7, 2020, through Give DeKalb County (see below).
Please stay in touch on our social media channels, where we’ll continue to provide updates and share ways to engage with art and culture from home.
