After booking a world renowned cellist for the final concert of the Quad City Symphony's 100th season, orchestra supporters wanted to come up with something else "big" to mark the occasion. So they bought 100 cellos, and asked local artists to turn them into works of art.
A big idea, and six months of phone calls, have paid off for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra. Thursday night (5/14) it will celebrate the end of its 100th season with a concert, featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
An organization devoted to featuring live music, and music education, has just concluded a successful fund drive. A two-month campaign by the River Music Experience in Davenport ended March 31st, and it reached its goal of 62,000 dollars.
