The Association of Finnish Symphony Orchestras has published the Age-friendly orchestra manual prepared as a tool for designing services provided by orchestras to senior citizens outside concert venues. The manual enables orchestras to improve their accessibility and their ability to produce meaningful musical experiences for people of all ages. The KSO's pilot description can be found in the manual.
The KSO’s concert New Interpretations on the 11th of November at 7 pm brings the winner of the international Crusell Competition Jonathan Leibovitz to Kuopio.

The orchestra is conducted by Elena Schwarz..
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.
