About the KSA

Who Are The Kishwaukee Symphony Associates?

We, the KSA, are the volunteer service organization for the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra (KSO). Founded in 1983, the KSA is committed to supporting the artistic, educational, and financial goals of the KSO. We also strive to increase community awareness and concert attendance. In 2001, we established the KSO Endowment Fund through the DeKalb County Community Foundation to help ensure the orchestra’s future. We enhanced our mission, in 2019, by establishing the Music Education Outreach Fund through the KSO to help deserving students in DeKalb County middle schools and high schools with their music education. Membership in KSA is one way to support these important efforts.

The Kishwaukee Symphony Associates was named by the Illinois Council of Orchestras as the 2012 Orchestra Guild of the Year in recognition of the KSA’s activities in support of the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

KSA membership is open to all interested persons and you are cordially invited to join. Membership includes your name(s) listed in the concert programs and on the KSO website, the KSA Winter Newsletter, and special music invitations and alerts. Membership fees are $30.00 for an individual and $35.00 for a family. Proceeds from the annual membership drive augment the orchestra’s operating expenses, the Endowment Fund, and the Music Education Outreach Fund.

For additional information regarding the KSA and/or KSA membership, please contact Gretchen Moore, KSA President, at 815-758-6397 or at gmoore@niu.edu.
