First ever Side x Side Concert

Hundreds of musicians, young and old, will fill the Adler Theatre stage on February 1 when the professional musicians of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra perform side-by-side with the Quad City Symphony Youth Ensembles for the first time ever. All four youth orchestras will have their moment to shine as they perform music by Dvorák, Strauss, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, and Shostakovich.

 The concert also features a performance by Robert Spurgeon, the 2014 Quad City Symphony Youth Ensembles Concerto Competition winner, for the first time ever accompanied by the Quad City Symphony Orchestra. Spurgeon will be performing Saint-Saëns' Concerto No. 1 for Cello. Tickets for this concert start at $10, with 50% off for student tickets.

The concert is at the Adler Theatre on February 1 at 4:00 p.m. This concert is sponsored by UnityPoint-Trinity, with additional funding from The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation.


Bud, Not Buddy at the Davenport Public Library

For this exciting new collaboration, musicians from the Quad City Symphony Orchestra will demonstrate the illustrative power of music. The string trio will perform well known pieces of classical repertoire chosen to mirror the emotional impact of memorable moments in the book Bud, Not Buddy, in the same way a movie score might.

The program is being performed at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on February 8 at the Davenport Public Library in downtown Davenport, 321 N. Main Street. The event is free to the public and students of all ages are invited to attend.
