Washington County's “Hometown” Symphony Orchestra, Since 1968
Classical music concerts with over 60 fine musicians from Washington County and the greater metro-Milwaukee area.
KMS Announces its 2014-15 Concert Season
New venues, great music!
Kettle Moraine Symphony will continue its tour this year, both musically and literally, performing music of many lands with each concert in a different location.
The September concert will feature beloved music of Grieg, Sibelius and other Scandinavian favorites in an exciting venue- Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School's new Performing Arts Center, which was completed in early 2013. More about this concert...
In November, KMS travels back to its "home" at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in West Bend to perform a program featuring a rich tapestry of “Italian Voices,” and welcomes back soprano soloist, Deanna Gibeau.
In March, the orchestra packs up and embarks on another exciting journey to West Bend High School's reinvented auditorium in its newly polished incarnation known as the West Bend Fine Arts Center. “An English Garden” will feature an English formal tea, compositions of English origin, and an inspiring performance by the young artist who wins the 2015 Washington County Concerto Competition.
Finally, KMS returns once more to Holy Hill in May to perform sacred music in a sacred space, featuring Haydn's majestic “Lord Nelson Mass” and KMS brass in antiphonal splendor.
