The Knox-Galesburg Symphony is thrilled to be entering its 65th season! We are proud to be a "magnificent cultural treasure" and a part of Galesburg, Illinois. This year, you can expect metropolitan-level performance standards, world-class artists, and a plentiful spectrum of education opportunities for all ages in Galesburg and surrounding communities, but we have even more in store. A new recital series, exciting new events and opportunities, and a free family matinee are just a few of the ways we're celebrating 65 years!
