Who We Are

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.

The SSKC provides a place for us to come together and play again, while making new friends at the same time. We not only play music together, we have several social nights out as well.

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