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. Membership in the KSA is one way to support this important mission.

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 Coffee and Music with KSA in September, your name(s) listed in the concert programs, invitations to attend the KSO Children’s Concert and Young Artist Concerto Competition auditions, 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.
