The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra combines players from all over the Kenai Peninsula. Musicians from other areas of Alaska and beyond join in when they are needed or able. Rehearsals usually involve round-trip travel of 70 miles or more; seldom are all the players together before a concert. The musicians are all volunteers and generally are not professionals, although some have been or could be if they chose. They play for the love of music.
The mission of the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra is to provide enriched educational opportunities and cultural experiences to the Kenai Peninsula community through the study and performance of the orchestral arts.
