The performance by the Quad City Symphony Orchestra and Mark Russell Smith, Music Director and Conductor, of Jacob Bancks’ Rock Island Line will be featured Friday, August 29, 2014, on Performance Today, a nationally syndicated radio program by American Public Media.
The Quad City Symphony Orchestra is set to finish with possibly one of the grandest season finales possible with Mahler's Symphony No. 3. Mahler himself described his Third Symphony as being "...of such magnitude that it actually mirrors the whole world."
The final concert on the QCSO/WVIK Signature Series is also coming up soon. The Quad City Symphony Orchestra and WVIK, Quad Cities NPR, are presenting QCSO Concertmaster Naha Greenholtz, clarinetist Kyle Knox. Pianist Benjamin Loeb, and cellist Sæunn Thorsteinsdöttir.
