The 2013-2014 season will include a Holiday Concert in addition to the regular Fall, Winter, and Spring concerts.  In making the announcement, QCWE Board President Jeremy Hill noted that, "We received excellent reviews last year for our Holiday Concert, and QCWE members had such a great time playing, that the Holiday Concert was a must.  That concert will have a similar format to last year, as we will share the stage with our friends and colleagues of the Big River Brass Band."  Hill also noted that new this year is a Saturday evening concert in the Spring, as part of the QCWE's commitment to seeking new ways to reach audiences.
