Debra Sandry, Director of Development with the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, has accepted a position as Director of Development with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra in Norfolk, VA. Sandry joined the QCSO in November of 2004 and during her six years with the QCSO has raised a combined $4.2 million in annual support.

"The QCSO leadership welcomed me six years ago, giving me the opportunity to work on behalf of the Orchestra. I can't say enough about the overwhelming generosity of the Board of Trustees and all our donors. This move will be bittersweet, as I have truly enjoyed watching this orchestra grow through some very challenging years," said Sandry.

"Deb Sandry has been a true asset for this organization and we wish her the best in all of her endeavors," said Jeff vom Saal, Executive Director for the QCSO.
