About the KSA

Who Are The Kishwaukee Symphony Associates?

We, the KSA, are the volunteer service organization for the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra (KSO). With the help of many of you who care about the quality of life in our area, we established the KSO Endowment Fund in 2001 through the DeKalb County Community Foundation to help ensure the orchestra’s future. The KSA, founded in 1983, supports the endowment fund and the orchestra, and strives to increase community awareness and concert attendance. This season the KSA is enhancing its mission by adding music education outreach through the KSO. Membership in KSA is one way to support this important effort.

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.

On Tuesday evening, October 23, 2018, the KSA will host a special event, Supper and Songs, in support of the KSO’s music-education outreach initiatives for children and youth in our community. This event is open to KSA members and other friends of the orchestra. Please click here for information about this event and how to make a reservation.

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

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.
