Group founded by A&M-Kingsville music faculty members

The inaugural performance of the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra (KSO), conducted by Dr. Mark Rogers and featuring students and faculty from Texas A&M University-Kingsville with local musicians, happens Sunday, Dec. 3, at 3 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Kingsville as part of the Yuletide Festival Concert with the Kingsville Community Chorus.

Tickets are $10. They can be purchased at the Kingsville Chamber of Commerce and from members of the Kingsville Community Chorus and the A&M-Kingsville music faculty.

Music to be performed by the KSO include “The First Noel,” “O Holy Night,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and portions from Handel’s “Messiah.”

The KSO started from an idea proposed by A&M-Kingsville music educators Dr. Nancy KingSanders, James Warth, Dr. Chris Carrillo, Bruce Schueneman and Dr. Yutaka Kono, along with his wife Kathleen Kono.

They brought the orchestra to fruition with the help of Kathy Martinez of the Kingsville Chamber of Commerce and Sandra Glover-Messbarger, who established the Kingsville Arts Council and is conductor and artistic director of the Kingsville Community Chorus.

The Kingsville Arts Council is funding this first performance of the KSO.
