Celebrating Linc Smelser: May 4, 2024

The KSO is proud to conclude our 20th anniversary celebrations of Linc Smelser’s tenure with the KSO with a special day in Linc’s honor, coinciding with the KSO’s final concert of its 47th season. Mayor Cohen Barnes has issued a proclamation celebrating Linc Smelser, the KSO’s conductor and music director for more than 20 years, for his unwavering commitment to music, education, and the enrichment of our community’s cultural tapestry. On April 22, the DeKalb City Council presented the proclamation to KSO General Manager Courtney Hanna-McNamara and KSO Publicist and Music Librarian Tamara Farrell. The proclamation will be presented at the KSO’s concert on May 4.
