Founded in 1971, the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra is the Upper Peninsula’s oldest orchestra and one of five symphony orchestras in the Lake Superior region. The KSO is a college-community ensemble comprising Michigan Tech students, faculty and staff, and community musicians. The orchestra presents 4-5 concerts per year—including orchestral masterworks, choral-orchestral, music theatre, ballet, opera, and pops—in the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. The KSO goes on concert tours in the Midwest every few years.
