John Deere & Hubbell-Waterman Foundations, First Presbyterian Church and Many Individual Donors Support New Private Lesson Program

The latest initiative from Volunteers for Symphony (VfS) to help raise funds for Quad City area youth music education is Trivia Night by VfS.   Trivia Night will be held this Saturday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. at the Tanglewood Hills Pavilion in Bettendorf at 4250 Middle Road.

Trivia Night by VfS will be halloween-themed and feature fun questions in entertaining categories and designed for beginners and experts alike.  A silent auction, raffle and bake sale will be featured along with a variety of prizes.  Food is available for purchase.

Trivia Night by VfS raises funds to support the Quad City Symphony Orchestra (QCSO) and their youth education engagement programs.  The QCSO is the largest provider of music education engagement programs in the Quad City region reaching more than 10,000 students each year.

New music education in the 2015-16 school year features bi-weekly private one-on-one lessons with professional musician instructors.  Support for this new program is provided by the John Deere and Hubbell-Waterman Foundations, First Presbyterian Church and many individual donors.  This program joins the Quad City Symphony Youth Ensembles, Symphony Day, classroom performances, Instruments for Kids and Students@Symphony, each designed to open the world of music to youth.  Support for the many education programs also comes from Arthur J. Gallagher, Rock Island Community Foundation, Doris & Victor Day Foundation and many individuals.

Volunteers for Symphony invites all interested in supporting youth music education to join them for the fun Trivia Night this Saturday at the Tanglewood Hills Pavilion.
