Kalamazoo Kids In Tune/Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra

We are business as usual this week - KKIT starts up again on Tuesday and our virtual study halls start up again on Wednesday. We still have spaces for students to join us, they can enroll online here:

We are currently gearing up for Family February. Every February, we welcome loved ones of KKIT students to become honorary members of the orchestra! You don't have to have previously playing experience or an instrument at home to join. We will provide instruments and introductory lessons so you and your student can prepare together for a special virtual performance on March 4. The time commitment is 2 hours per week, including every Thursday from 4pm-5pm. Sign up here: We will also be holding a virtual family board game night and picture scavenger hunts throughout the month for families.
