Masterworks Series

Sunday afternoons at 2:30 p.m. at The Isabel

The Masterworks Series features some of the greatest musical masterpieces in history including Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2, Beethoven’s Eroica, Stravinsky’s Firebird and a festival of Mozart where the Kingston Symphony performs his last three symphonies, all written in a span of six weeks! We feature world-class guest artists including pianist Vadim Serebryany as well as violinists Yosuke Kawasaki and Bénédicte Lauzière, and a showcase of concertos performed by soloists from your Kingston Symphony.


Pops Series

Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Theatre

The Kingston Symphony’s Pops Series has something for everyone! We begin the series with a full-out symphonic Hallowe’en party with music inspired by witches, demons, Edgar Allan Poe, and even candy! In other programs, we salute the music of Heroes and Superheroes from movies and television; take a hysterically funny tour through the realm of opera ‘at warp speed’; and welcome back the legendary Dave Bennett as he presents a revue of popular music from Swing to Rock ‘n’ Roll. What a line up!

Special Concerts

Add in two fabulous concerts for young people and families, a presentation of our annual Candlelight Christmas concerts (Kingston’s favourite holiday tradition), and a performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, the Ode to Joy, complete with a special onstage multimedia presentation explaining how the piece works before we perform it.


This is a powerhouse of a season. Come celebrate with us as we perform some of the world's best music, partner with entertainment acts you won't believe, and above all provide a magical and memorable experience, just for you!
