Community Programs

Throughout its history, the QCSO has always had strong bonds with its surrounding communities. Whether through partnerships with organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club or an informal performance at a winery, the QCSO is always working to find new and unique ways to engage Quad Citizens of all ages.

Boys and Girls Club Cello Program

In 2017, the QCSO and the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley (BGCMV) launched a new initiative aimed at creating access to music education.

Community Performances

The QCSO annually provides over 50 community presentations/performances featuring Quad City Symphony Musicians and Soloists.

Orchestras Feeding America

QCSO has teamed up with River Bend Food Bank to raise funds, collect food donations, and pull together volunteers to work towards the goal of ending hunger in the Quad Cities.
