In honor of the Classic Car Club of America’s “European Luxury” experience, the Kalamazoo Symphony is proud to present an all-European program featuring works by Ludwig van Beethoven and Percy Grainger.

For over 100 years, the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra has been a part of the fabric of our community. Under the leadership of Executive Director Jessica Mallow Gulley and Music Director Julian Kuerti, what began as one woman’s dream 100 years ago has become, through the unwavering support of the Kalamazoo community, an integral part of the cultural and educational life of the region. Every year, the KSO provides more than 40 concert performances, reaching more than 50,000 music lovers. We seek to expand our reach and learn from our community so that we can be equitable and inclusive of all people. We are committed to the promises made in our strategic plan and to our mission of serving this community through outstanding musical listening and learning experiences.

In 1995, as part of the 75th anniversary celebration of the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, a commitment was made to develop four full-time positions that would both enable the orchestra to create community service and education programs and strengthen the orchestra ensemble. To this end, the Artist in Residence program began with the KSO's Burdick-Thorne String Quartet. Since that time, the Artist in Residence program has grown to eight positions; including oboe, clarinet, trombone, and timpani. As a result, the artistic level of the orchestra has soared, and the KSO's education and community programs have expanded to reach over 45,000 people and more than 190 schools in eight counties throughout Southwest Michigan.
