Celebrating the Past, Looking Forward to the Future

IA/IL QUAD-CITIES – The 2014-2015 season marks the 100th year of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra (QCSO) in the Quad Cities area. Over the past century, the QCSO has presented masterpieces both old and new for the enjoyment of music lovers in the Midwest. “In celebrating our 100th Season, we look back on the rich legacy of our past, and also look forward to how we will serve the community in the next 100 years,” said Mark Russell Smith, QCSO Music Director and Conductor. “We thank the people of the Quad Cities area for their sincere ongoing support.” 

“We see the 100th Season as a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness as we celebrate this historic milestone,” said Benjamin Loeb, QCSO Executive Director. “During the 100th Season we will present the world premieres of five compositions in the QCSO Masterworks series. Also, the season will end in a one-night-only concert featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma, a best-selling classical recording artist with more than 75 albums, including 15 Grammy Award-winners.”

According to Loeb, the 100th Season will feature works by three composers from the Quad-Cities and surrounding area. “The Riverfront Pops featured world-premiere music from a local composer in its pre-show,” he said. “Several new arrangements by William Campbell, Composition Professor at St. Ambrose University, were performed by the Quad City Symphony Youth Ensemble.” 

The first premiered piece in the Masterworks series is by John Frantzen, originally from Maquoketa, Iowa. “John now lives in Los Angeles, California, and composes for films and documentaries,” Loeb said. “He comes from an artistic family – his sister, Rose Frantzen, is an accomplished artist whose work has appeared in full exhibits at Davenport’s Figge Museum.”

Loeb noted that the season will also include a commissioned work by Jacob Bancks, Assistant Professor of Theory and Composition at Augustana College. Loeb, an accomplished pianist, will perform the work with violinist David Bowlin on the first Signature Series concert October 19. 

The Holiday Pops will be conducted by new QCSO Assistant Conductor Benjamin Klemme and will feature the return engagements of the First Presbyterian Church Sanctuary Choir and Quad City Symphony Youth Choir. Cirque de la Symphonie, the group that thrilled QC audiences a few years back with their energetic troupe of aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers and more, will be back as well. A new work by composer Gary Fry will receive its world premiere at the Holiday Pops. This year, Holiday Pops will be back at the Adler Theatre in three performances including a Saturday matinee perfect for family members of all ages.

According to Smith, the many premieres in the 100th Season show that the QCSO is deeply invested in perpetuating the classical tradition. “Classical music isn’t meant to be a museum,” he said. “It’s a live, vibrant, creative force. It’s not just about the past: it’s about the present and the future. We enjoy bringing new works to the public’s attention. The composers we are working with all have very different voices, as unique and diverse as the individuals themselves.”

The 100th Season also marks the return of famed pianist Garrick Ohlsson, who last appeared with the QCSO in 1989. Ohlsson is an international grandmaster pianist and the first American to win the International Frederic Chopin Piano Competition. “Ohlsson is a personal favorite of mine,” Loeb said. “He creates incredible emotion without being overly sentimental.”

The highlight of the 100th Season will be a performance by master cellist, Yo-Yo Ma. “He is today’s biggest star in classical music,” Loeb said. “He receives countless requests to perform. We went through seven months of negotiations before he said ‘Yes’ in late 2013. He has worked with me and Mark Russell Smith before, and that helped to secure the engagement.” 

Loeb went to work lining up sponsors for the Yo-Yo Ma performance and gained enthusiastic support from the Riverboat Development Authority, Modern Woodmen of America, and John Deere. “We are delighted that Yo-Yo Ma will be coming to the Quad-Cities to share his unique talents,” he said, “and we know most music lovers throughout the area share that sentiment.”

In addition to the Pops Series, Masterworks Series and Signature Series, the 100th Season will also include Youth Concerts, Family Concerts, Side by Side Concerts, and Volunteer Events, as well as such multi-faceted educational programs as youth ensembles and school education engagements. Many other programs are also in place to enhance the public’s enjoyment and enlightenment, including:

Inside the Music: Conversations with QCSO Music Director Mark Russell Smith on Thursday afternoons at the Hotel Blackhawk before the Masterworks. Students@Symphony: Local students are invited to QCSO dress rehearsals and interact with the guest soloists, QCSO musicians and Music Director Mark Russell Smith.

Concert Conversations: Pre-concert conversations one hour before concert start time, hosted by Kai Swanson of Augustana College.

Afterglow: A gathering in the lobby of the Hotel Blackhawk after Saturday Masterworks with free hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and a chance to socialize with the musicians from the concert.

“The QCSO has been a part of this community for a century, and that says a lot,” Smith observed. “It has played an important role in this area since it first began, and will continue to be just as important 100 years from now. The Symphony is part of what makes this an exciting place to live. It adds inherent value to the community.”

Quad City Symphony Orchestra tickets are available at the QCSO box office at 327 Brady St., Davenport. You can also call the QCSO at (563) 322-7276 or visit  http://www.qcso.org.

Fred Hammond & Donnie McClurkin

The Festival of Praise Tour

7:00 pm Monday, September 29, 2014

Adler Theatre, 136 E. 3rd Street, Davenport, IA 52801

The Festival of Praise Tour is brought to us by Echo Ministries.

For more than 35 years, music listeners around the world have known Fred Hammond as a talented songwriter, bassist and vocalist. Known worldwide as the tall raspy tenor who commands your attention with his powerful and rich sounding vocals, Donnie McClurkin has more than proven that is far more than a gospel singer.

One of the most celebrated artists in gospel music, Donnie McClurkin is the Senior Pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY, host of a nationally syndicated radio show and a judge on Sunday Best, the highly-rated gospel talent competition show on the BET Network. He is currently promoting his latest CD project, Duets. This is McClurkin’s first tour since the highly acclaimed The King’s Men Tour 2012, which featured Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp and Israel Houghton. “I can’t begin to express how excited I am to be teaming up with my long-time friend and brother, Fred Hammond, for the Festival of Praise Tour,” says Donnie.  “We’re planning a great evening of worship that we know will minister to people across the country and spread the message of God’s love.”

Message from New Anthem:

"A lot of people don't know this, but I produced the annual Quad City Gospel Music Festival with Valerie Davis for over 13 years. We helped to teach Valerie the concert business, gave her start up office equipment, paid her way to Nashville for Christian concert promoter training and we worked in depth with her starting in 1997. Valerie Davis is now the region's most respected concert promoter, having brought in big names from the African-American Gospel recording industry over decades, and more recently, the Smooth Jazz Concert Series (which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary next month!)

"The coolest thing about the experience over those years was what the mainstream 'white' church is missing, and has no idea of. Our African-American brothers and sisters in the Lord are so richly blessed with spirit and love, with worship and praise, it's something that I wish every single believer in the Quad Cities area could experience first-hand. Because I know how richly you would be blessed by the experience. The trick is getting the mainstream to go to these events. Here is a great chance to do more than witness it, but to experience it first-hand. Don't miss this!

"Yours in Christ,

Timm Dalman

NASHVILLE BAND, GOODBYE JUNE, WINS GRAND PRIZE IN UNSIGNED ONLY MUSIC COMPETITION PDF Print E-mail

John Oates, Rosanne Cash, Of Monsters and Men, Dustin Lynch,
Mike Posner, Neon Trees, and 3 Doors Down Are Among 2014 Judges

September 16, 2014 - Unsigned Only Music Competition is pleased to announce its 2014 winners selected from over 8,000 entries worldwide. The overall Grand Prize goes to the up-and-coming Nashville band Goodbye June with the song “Daisy.” Judged by a roster of high-profile journalists and artists such as Of Monsters And Men, Rosanne Cash, Mike Posner, John Oates, Dustin Lynch and many more, Unsigned Only is a unique music competition designed for solo artists and bands who are unsigned to a major label.
Winning $10,000 cash and additional merchandise, the Grand Prize winner also receives the unprecedented opportunity to be mentored by the top echelon of record company professionals, including Presidents and top-level executives from Universal Republic, Sire, Elektra, Atlantic, Warner Bros., Capitol, Sub Pop, Big Machine, Roc Nation, Virgin, Word, American Recordings, and Minty Fresh.
“We're thrilled that our judges selected Nashville rockers Goodbye June as this year's Grand Prize winners,” state Founders Candace Avery and Jim Morgan. “As a band that is clearly moving up the ranks in the independent world of rock and roll, we predict it won't be long before this band will be gracing the same stages as some of their more
well-known idols. Goodbye June, hello world!”
Southern rock with a contemporary twist, Goodbye June’s music showcases their individual and collective talents, as well as their grit and soul. The three cousins who comprise Goodbye June believe that the key to their success is their openness and honesty with each other, and this has contributed to how their sound was created.  Formed after the death of the guitarist’s brother, playing music became an emotional release and a big part of the healing process for them. Their debut album "Nor The Wild Music Flow" was released in 2012, alongside their debut music video "Microscope" featuring St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and country star Steve Holy. The band embarked on a debut European tour in the Fall of 2013 where they toured through Germany, Sweden, Finland, Holland, Belgium, France, and Spain during a 6-week stint across the Atlantic. The guys are currently finishing up their yet-to-be-titled sophomore album with Grammy-nominated producer Paul Moak and Kevin Williamson.
In addition to the Grand Prize winner, many other deserving artists are winners in their respective categories. With a total of 11 categories and First and Second Place in each (along with a list of Honorable Mentions), Unsigned Only covers all genres of commercial contemporary music, including: Adult Album Alternative (AAA); Adult Contemporary (AC); Americana; Christian; Country; Folk/Singer-Songwriter; R&B/Hip-Hop; Rock; Pop/Top 40; Teen; and Vocal Performance.
In addition to all the category winners, Unsigned Only launched a new opportunity for entrants called “Screen Shot.” Geared toward the placement of music in film, TV, advertising, and video games, Screen Shot’s goal is to connect independent artists with industry contacts who are looking for music for upcoming projects. The 2014 winner is the Los Angeles, CA band The Bicycle Mob for their song “Bursting Into Life.” In addition to cash and prizes courtesy of Radio Airplay, the winner also gets to directly network with a group of music placement executives, including: Alec Sharpe (Shine America); Ani Johnson (Monomyth Media); Chip Miller (Desert C.A.M.
