KUSD to present 57th Orchestra Festival March 9 & 10
Kenosha Unified School District’s 57th Annual Orchestra Festival will be presented on Saturday, March 9, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 10, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. in the Indian Trail High School and Academy field house. The event will feature performances by nearly 1,400 elementary, middle, high and charter school string students. Additional high school band students also will perform with the full orchestras.
Tickets are available at the KUSD Fine Arts website. All seats are reserved and patrons can choose between the field house performance venue ($10 adult, $8 students/staff/seniors) or live-feed video auditorium seating ($4). Both performances will be live-streamed on Channel 20 and at the KUSD YouTube channel. This event traditionally sells out, and tickets cannot be guaranteed at the door.
