The Quad City Youth Prelude Strings will give their first public performance in Augustana College's Centennial Hall on Sunday, February 22, at 3 p.m. as part of the Quad City Youth String Ensemble's nineteenth Annual Concert. The performance will take place at Augustana College's Centennial Hall and features music by Mussorgsky, Mozart, Holst and Caponegro, among others. Both the Quad City Youth Prelude Strings and the Quad City Youth String Ensemble are led by Music Director and Conductor Dortha DeWit.
Prelude Strings was founded this year in response to the high demand for membership in the QCSO's youth ensembles. Prelude Strings is the third and youngest of the QCSO's youth ensembles, which also includes the Quad City Youth String Ensemble and the Quad City Youth Symphony Orchestra. The QCSO's youth ensembles serve approximately 170 area youth.
