Grab your picnic basket and "Beat It" down to LeClaire Park for an evening at the Quad City Bank & Trust Riverfront Pops. This year's concert will be led by conductor Brent Havens and feature the music of Michael Jackson performed by the Quad City Symphony Orchestra and vocalist James Delisco, winner of E! Network's "The Entertainer." You'll moonwalk through this tribute to the King of Pop, ranging from his days with the Jackson 5 through his mega-hits of the 80s and beyond. It's going to be a "Thriller!"

 

General admission tickets for the show are $20 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. You can get your tickets today at any Quad City Bank & Trust, Whitey's Ice Cream, or by clicking here.

 

Limited reserved seating is available in the first several rows of the permanent seating at the front of the park. Reserved seats in this area are $45 per person, with children's tickets available for just $15. No need to bring a lawn chair or arrive early to reserve your space on the lawn - just come and enjoy the show! Reserved seats can be purchased at the QCSO Box Office or online by clicking here.

 

Youth Orchestra alumna now award winning soloist

 

Quad City Youth Symphony Orchestra alumna Saeunn Thorsteinsdottir recently made her debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic where the LA Times praised her for her "emotional intensity." On September 15, Thorsteinsdottir will be bringing this same emotional intensity back to the Quad Cities as she performs Rachmaninov's Sonata for Piano and Cello and other selected works. Since her career burgeoned in the Quad City Youth Symphony Orchestra, Thorsteinsdottir has garnered numerous top prizes in international competitions, including the 2008 Naumburg Competition in New York and the Antonio Janigro Competition in Zagreb, Coatia.

 

Thorsteinsdottir will be performing with pianist Benjamin Loeb. Recently appointed Executive Director of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, this will be Loeb's first appearance on a QCSO concert. As a pianist, Benjamin Loeb has been praised by the Boston Globe: "[his] vigorous, cogent playing signaled the kind of equally weighted partnership, plus competition, plus mutual quest, etc. that [makes] this music live." His concerts have taken him around to world to major venues and on radio and TV in New York City, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Berlin, Seoul, Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Panama City, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and tours across the United States. He has performed for Community Concerts and has been featured as Artist-in-Residence on NPR's Performance Today with violinist Livia Sohn.

 

In addition to the Rachmaninov Sonata, the duo will be performing other works including a world premiere from local Composer William Campbell. Campbell's Green Fire Variations for cello and piano is music about the energy within wild things. The title uses words borrowed from writer and conservationist Aldo Leopold: "We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes...I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view." (Sand County Almanac)
