Kuopio Symphony Orchestra

Kuopio Symphony Orchestra maintains the 100-year-old orchestra tradition as the largest symphony orchestra of Eastern Finland. The first conductor of the Kuopio City Orchestra was Lauri Siimes, followed by Nicholas Smith, Pertti Pekkanen, Robert Black, Atso Almila, Shuntaro Sato, Vello Pähn and Sascha Goetzel. The Principal Conductor as of autumn 2013 is Alberto Hold-Garrido and the Second Conductor is Atso Almila. Orchestra's Conductor Laureate is Jorma Panula.

The KSO holds most of its 60 or so concerts a year at the Kuopio Music Centre. In addition to its symphonic repertoire, the orchestra also covers a wide range of genres from chamber music to crossover concerts to the enjoyment of the public. The orchestra also pursues an active art education policy.

Kuopio Symphony Orchestra has performed on tour in Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Japan and in China. The orchestra cooperates on a permanent basis with the Savonlinna Opera Festival and has played in five world premieres. It has recorded on Finlandia Records and Japanese Octavia Records labels. In 2015 the latest CD was released on Alba Records.
