DAVENPORT, IOWA (September 13, 2021) — The Quad City Symphony Orchestra (QCSO) is committed to providing an amazing live music experience in an enjoyable and safe environment for our musicians, patrons, and staff.

We look forward to welcoming you back into the concert hall and have implemented the following health and safety precautions for our indoor concerts and events, including Inside the Music and Concert Conversations.


Face Mask Requirements

Facial-coverings will be universally required for all indoor QCSO concerts for as long as community transmission remains substantial or high in both or either Scott and Rock Island counties according to the CDC COVID Data Tracker.

Once transmission rates become moderate or low in both Scott and Rock Island counties according to the CDC COVID Data Tracker, masks will be optional for vaccinated individuals and strongly recommended for unvaccinated individuals.

Facial-coverings must be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth. Patrons arriving without appropriate face-coverings will be provided with a disposable face-mask.


All QCSO musicians, staff, and in-person volunteers are fully vaccinated! Thank you to those who have already received the vaccine and are helping us to continue to provide superb symphonic music live. You can join us in the effort to keep in-person concerts going by getting vaccinated today. Find a location near you.
