The Kingston Symphony Association exists to produce and promote professional quality programs of instrumental and choral music for the education, enjoyment, and enrichment of audiences in the Greater Kingston area. The Kingston Symphony is dedicated to the support, development, and showcasing of Canadian artists and composers.
Celebrating its 64th season in 2017-2018, the Kingston Symphony Association is the umbrella organization for six performing ensembles: Kingston Symphony, Kingston Choral Society, Kingston Youth Orchestra, Kingston Youth Strings, Kingston A-Strings, and Kingston Community Strings. We are also fortunate to have a 225-member Volunteer Committee who work on our behalf to raise funds for the operation of our organization and provide financial awards for deserving young musicians each season.
