Living Proof Exhibit Opera: Karkinos
February 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm CST
The Quad City Symphony Orchestra is committed to the health and safety of everyone who attends our performances, our musicians, staff and volunteers, and our entire community. To limit potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus, this event has been postponed. All currently issued tickets will be honored for the new date. If you are unable to attend the new concert date, we encourage you to consider donating your tickets back to the Symphony, giving them away to others in your network, or you may exchange them for an upcoming concert in the 2020-21 season.
In collaboration with Living Proof Exhibit, the QCSO has commissioned local composer and Augustana Professor Jacob Bancks to create a dramatic oratorio entitled Karkinos that will provide hope and celebration for those with cancer and all who love them. Inspired by direct conversations with people impacted by cancer, this emotional multi-media work featuring chamber orchestra, vocal soloists, and choir, depicts the story of a beautiful empress who is forced into battle with the unseen monster Karkinos the night before her coronation.
