Name of creator
The group we now know as the Kingston Symphony was founded as the New Symphony Association of Kingston in 1953, and was so named to distinguish it from both Oscar Telgmann's Kingston Symphony, active from 1912-1938, and other, shorter-lived ensembles. The orchestra made its debut accompanying that same performance of The Creation in April 1954. Today, they have a full-time staff of two, a professional music director, a part-time staff of six, nine core and up to fifty-five community musicians, and they give over 20 concerts per season.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of correspondence, minutes and by-laws (1954-1973); subject files, financial records, scrapbooks compiled by the Association (1959-1971); production and general files, Executive Directors' Reports, minutes, programmes, clippings (1957-1986); records of the New Symphony Association (1954-1963); programme and photo of the Kingston Symphony Orchestra performing in the auditorium of the Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute (25 January 1950).
