Help
The KPO is a truly community-based orchestra. A KPO receives a modest grant from Ku-ring-gai Council and no on-going financial support is received from the State or Federal governments. Each year more than 90% of the Orchestra’s funding must be sourced from ticket sales, from the support of many individuals and from community-minded companies.
