Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra
Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra will return to Stangholmen this year. Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra is a young and vital orchestra, with 70 full-time musicians from 15 different nations. In fact, it is one of the youngest professional symphony orchestras in the world, formed in 2003. KSO works closely with Kilden’s other artistic departments, such as Kilden Opera and Kilden Teater. NRK regularly performs concerts with the orchestra, and they collaborate with record companies such as NAXOS and CPO. Several of KSO’s concerts are streamed to nursing homes and other public institutions in Kristiansand.
