The KSO has contributed to the cultural life in East Tennessee since 1935. Under the leadership of Lucas Richman, the orchestra consists of more than 80 professional musicians and performs more than 200 programs throughout East Tennessee each season. Performing in traditional venues such as the Tennessee Theatre, Bijou Theatre, and the Civic Auditorium, and in non-traditional places like hospitals, school classrooms, nursing homes, city parks, and churches, the KSO reaches more than 200,000 people throughout the region each year.
