The QCSO provides community service and programs to a market of more than 450,000 residents of eastern Iowa and western Illinois, staging performances in both Iowa and Illinois. Programming includes dozens of education programs delivered to over 24,000 area students.
Each season, the QCSO present six Masterworks concert series led by Mark Russell Smith, Music Director. In addition, the Signature Series presents small ensembles primarily in Wallenberg Hall on the Augustana College campus. This versatile and intimate series features select members of the QCSO and visiting artists from across the nation. Under the artistic direction of Concertmaster Naha Greenholtz, the Signature Series presents a unique artistic vision and is a testament to the vitality and versatility of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra musicians. In 1958, the QCSO founded the Quad City Youth Symphony Orchestra and since has added four additional training ensembles: the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, Youth String Ensemble, Prelude Strings, and Youth Choir.
