Kokoro is the contemporary music ensemble of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. The title ‘Kokoro’ comes from the Japanese word meaning ‘heart’, and the group comprises both players from the BSO and freelance musicians committed to performing 20th century and contemporary ensemble music. Founded in 1994 by Kevin Field, a former member of the BSO, Kokoro has also been closely associated with Mark Forkgen who was appointed the ensemble’s Principal Conductor and Artistic Adviser in September 2002.
