Musicians

For over a century, music lovers from all parts of Nebraska have gathered in Kearney to join in the camaraderie of playing and listening to great symphony orchestra literature, as well as popular favorites. The Kearney Symphony Orchestra, which is comprised of UNK faculty and students as well as talented instrumentalists from communities across the region, performs classical and pops concert repertoire, opera, musicals and large works with choir.

The orchestra is open to all who qualify through audition. Auditions are held on the first Tuesday of each semester (August and January) at 6 p.m. in Room 247 of the UNK Fine Arts Building.    

The Kearney Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of David Barg.
