Quincy Symphony’s elite youth orchestra and children’s chorus groups have been preparing for their annual spring performances that will take place this March.

Hear the 45 members of Quincy Symphony Youth Orchestra in concert on Sunday, March 11 at the Salvation Army Kroc Center, located at 405 Vermont St. These talented student musicians were selected from across the Tri-States to perform with this outstanding group!

Under the direction of Dr. Rich Cangro, the orchestra will perform a repertoire of multi-cultural music selections composed for folk and classical dances with orchestra.

Audiences will enjoy a visual aspect of the show as local dancers will perform gracefully during a handful of the selections including Blue Danube, Johann Strauss; Dance of the Tumblers from The Snow Maiden by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Danza Final by composer Alberto Ginastera.

The Youth Chorus will perform the evening of Tuesday, March 20 in the beautiful First Union Congregational Church. Third through 6th graders in the Kinderchor will showcase an Irish-themed concert that celebrates Celtic traditions and music. The Concert Choir (for older youth through high school) will sing songs of celebration and renewal in honor of the arrival of spring.

Both concerts will start at 7 pm with free admission for everyone, including Quincy Symphony Orchestra Association season ticket holders. Donations will be accepted at the door.

Students are welcome to audition for each choir and the orchestra. To schedule an audition appointment, please call the Symphony Office at 217-222-2856. Find out more by visiting
