Free Holiday Concert One Week Away!

A free Holiday Concert will be performed by the Quad City Wind Ensemble and the Big River Brass Band on Sunday, December 9th at 3:00pm.  The concert will take place in the Allaert Auditorium at the Galvin Fine Arts Center on the St. Ambrose campus.

There is no admission required however the groups will be collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys for the local Salvation Army Angel Tree.

The program will include crowd favorite “Christmas Festival” by Leroy Anderson, Julie Giroux’s hilarious pastiche, “Christmas and Sousa Forever”, and an interesting take on all the familiar tunes–in minor keys, “Minor Alterations”!

The grand finale will include all the players from the QCWE and the BRBB in what should be a thrilling performance of Alfred Reed’s monumental “Russian Christmas Music”.Join us following the concert at Thunder Bay Grille on Brady Street in Davenport (almost next to I-80) for dinner with the performers in our own QCWE Private Room! The Thunder Bay Grille will donate 10% of the evening’s meals by performers and friends back to the Quad City Wind Ensemble. Thank you Thunder Bay Grille!
