No celebration of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra would be complete without featuring our wonderful musicians. Six QCSO principal musicians will take the spotlight in the works ranging from Saint-Saens' elegant Horn romance o Ravel's sensual introduction and Allegro for Harp to Haydn's playful Sinfonia Concertante. You will relish this opportunity to applaud their talent, framed by a world premiere from one of Iowa's most acclaimed composers, David Gompper, and one of the most recognized pieces in orchestral literature, Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor.
