Show your support for the Quad City Symphony Youth Ensembles through the Quad City Symphony Youth Ensembles Bowl-a-thon! This year more than 280 kids pursued their dream of musical excellence by committing many hours to practice, rehearsal, and live performances. Now they'll take a turn at bowling to help support the QCSYEs.
The Quad City Symphony Youth Orchestra program has five performance ensembles for students grades two through twelve. Ensemble members are from the metro Quad Cities as well as outlying areas. Members have the opportunity to play with the most talented musicians in the area under the regular direction of the QCSYEs conducting staff, have coaching sessions with professional QCSO musicians, and rehearse under QCSO director Mark Russell Smith.
QCSYEs presents three concerts each year including our new, annual Side by Side Concert on which all ensembles perform with the group immediately more advanced up to a performance by the Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Quad City Symphony. Other activities include season opening retreat at Augustana College, YSO performance at Riverfront Pops, Youth Choir performance at Holiday Pops, a Concerto Competition the Grand Prize Winner of which will perform with the Quad City Symphony at the SxS concert, and many other fun events!
