FACT! The new season begins.

“FACT and FICTION” is Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society’s theme for its 2018/2019 season music and programmes.

The members will reassemble on Tuesday 14th August for the new season, rehearsing in its now established new home and regular venue of Kirkcaldy’s Old Kirk, 6.45 – 9.15pm.

The selection of music for the orchestra’s work is as important for the players as it is for any potential audience and Musical Director and Conductor Graeme Wilson always has to balance these two factors in his choice of repertoire.

“FACT and FICTION” has as its basis music from the stage, screen, radio and written word with some film music, stories and theme tunes.

Plans for the year include concerts – on Tuesday 2nd October with more than a passing nod to remembrance of the end of World War 1, – on Sunday 16th December along with the Langtoun Singers and offering seasonal music and a new narrated story, – an appearance at Fife Festival of Music in February and two concerts in March. On 22nd March, KOS will perform at The Waid Academy, Anstruther and on Sunday 24th March at the Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy. These two performances will feature solo violinist Alison Miller along with the orchestra in Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso and other pieces. The now well established ‘Extra’ concert, featuring a mix of classical and contemporary music, will take place on 30th April.

KOS, Fife’s Community Orchestra, currently draws its members from across Fife, Edinburgh and the Lothians and always welcomes new members. There is space in most departments of the orchestra for new players to participate.
