The Kingsville Symphony Orchestra will celebrate its twelfth season, Dimensions in Rhythm, exploring the rhythmical component of orchestral music. The KSO will feature works that have varying rhythmic structures. The Season Opener will features John Adam’s Short Ride in a Fast Machine, a US Premiere of the Viola Concerto by Venezuelan composer Gonzalo Castellanos-Yumar with Venezuelan violist Melissa Melendez, Ralph Vaughan Williams' glorious string piece Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, and end with Ravel’s Bolero.
The classics will continue with our annual King Ranch Family Holiday Extravaganza under the direction of Guest Conductor, Lee Gwozdz.
Our Spring Welcome concert will open with one of the most famous orchestral pieces with a memorable motive, Marche Slave by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Kingsville’s own Duo Quentista will also perform an eclectic duet for Oboe and Percussion by UK composer Thea Musgrave entitled Two's Company. The Spring Welcome concert will close Manuel De Falla's The Three-Cornered Hat Suite.
KSO has the good fortune to have the support of Texas A&M University-Kingsville, the King Ranch Family Trust, the Robert J. Kleberg Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation, the B.C. and Addie Brookshire Foundation, HEB Grocery, the Coastal Bend Community Foundation and the people of Kingsville and surrounding areas. With the help and support of our patrons the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra is able to present a high level orchestral experience unmatched in cities of similar size.
