The Social Symphony is a KC-based, community-driven orchestra that started in 2018. We play various events and concerts year-round. While we welcome all walks of life into our symphony we are also simultaneously helping people reconnect with music and community.
Every member has a different background story and skill level. Many of us haven’t played with a group since high school or college. What we all have in common is our love for creating music with a group of people.

It’s really all in the name: The Social Symphony.
