Kent State University Orchestra

Performing works for both full symphony orchestra and strings, the KSU Orchestra is open to students of any undergraduate and graduate major at Kent State.


Each season, the Kent State University orchestra performs a five to six Subscription Concert Series presenting works from J.S. Bach and Corelli to Beethoven and William Grant Still and beyond. It’s also featured as part of the Kent State University Orchestra Society’s annual student scholarship fundraising event “Evening with the Orchestra.”

The Orchestra frequently collaborates with faculty, students and other ensembles from across the Glauser School, including Kent State Opera Theatre production and Kent State choral ensembles. It features both faculty and student winners of the Annual Concerto Competition as soloists. 

The ensemble is currently led by Dr. Jungho Kim, director of orchestra.
