About KPS Orchestra
Welcome to the Kearney Public Schools Orchestra website! The vision of KPS is to "provide a safe, supportive learning community that empowers students to become problem-solvers, engaged citizens, and compassionate people who own their future". Music is the medium through which we encourage problem-solving and critical thinking. Music promotes empathy and compassion. Our program begins in the 5th grade and lasts through high school. KPS Orchestras consistently receive outstanding ratings at music contests, and have received countless awards throughout the years.
