The KSO autumn season 2020 includes a great setting of Ludwig van Beethoven’s music to honor the master composer’s 250th anniversary. During the season KSO will perform among others all the piano concertos of the composer with Paavali Jumppanen. In addition KSO will stream concerts on YouTube again.
Kuopio Music Centre opened on the 10th of August for audience and the ticket office welcomes customers again. Kuopio Music Centre considers the current safety recommendations carefully. In the beginning of the autumn season only a limited number of seats are available for sale at the Music Centre Concert Hall.
The Kuopio Music Centre will open again for the public on Monday 10 August, 2020 and also the Kuopio Symphony Orchestra will start work in August. The Kuopio Music Centre and the Kuopio Symphony Orchestra follow the guidelines of the Finnish Government and the Regional State Administrative Agencies concerning safety in public events. The Music Centre safety guidelines as well as more information on the Autumn programme will be published in August.
The Kuopio Symphony Orchestra consists of 44 musicians. The KSO musicians represent well over 10 different nationalities and therefore the orchestra’s working language is English. The Chief Conductor of the KSO is Jaakko Kuusisto. Atso Almila acts as the Second Conductor. In 2010 professor and maestro Jorma Panula was appointed as the orchestra’s Honorary Conductor.
The Kuopio Symphony Orchestra wants to introduce various audience groups to the world of music by organizing diverse concerts and special events. The main point is to give artistic experiences, to increase public awareness and knowledge of orchestral music and other forms of art music and also to develop people’s cultural competence.
Enjoy our concerts in YouTube. The orchestra's YouTube Channel introduces concerts by the KSO chamber music ensembles and individual musicians as well as the whole Kuopio Symphohy Orchestra. The concerts have been either recorded or livestreamed from Restaurant Maxim in Kuopio or at the orchestra’s home, ie. at the Kuopio Music Centre.
