The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra is a community orchestra with members from all walks of life, united in our love of making music together.
We have a variety of events throughout the year. The highlight of our season is the annual Summer Music Festival, or the biggest little music festival in the world – covering nearly 16,000 square miles of the most beautiful place on earth!
Welcome to Musician of the Month – a brand new feature of kpoalaska.com! Periodically, I will spotlight a different member of our orchestra. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes borrowed, but never blue (well…perhaps when playing Gershwin!), I am looking forward to getting to know you all better! By the way, when I say “sometimes old” I mean “lifers” someone who has played with the KPO for more than 10 years - I can’t wait for us all to get to know each other better. Enjoy! – Mellisa
