ABOUT

The Overland Park Orchestra is a volunteer orchestra sponsored by the city of Overland Park. Since its inception in 1973, it has played at a variety of venues for both children and adults, including a regular Halloween concert with the City of Overland Park. Jim Funkhouser has been the conductor since 1981. The Overland Park Orchestra is grateful for the support of the city and hopes to inspire a new generation to love music.

Besides bring classical music to the community, they are very busy in the community at large. Promoting programs that support the development of young aspiring artist is as important to this orchestra as being the vessel for quality entertainment in Overland Park.

Our free, public concerts are for audiences of all ages! Bring your family to our seasonal performances.  See our calendar for 2016-2017 schedule.  Admission is free.
