In honor of Yo-Yo Ma's upcoming performance with the Quad City Symphony Orchestra to celebrate our 100th year, Volunteers for Symphony has launched "100 Years, 100 Cellos”, a project that will create and display beautiful art around the Quad Cities and raise awareness and funds to support the QCSO educational programs.

You can be a part of this ambitious project to create 100 painted cellos by signing up to be an artist or a sponsor! Sponsorships starts at $1,000, and you can either decorate your own cello or have an artist provided for you by VfS. You can also determine the display location of the cello. All of the cellos will be brought together at our Birthday Party on May 29, 2015 at the Figge Art Museum. Our fundraising goal is to raise $100,000 and make everyone in the QC aware of our critical Music Education programs. For more information please contact Sara Morby, Director of Marketing, at smorby@qcso.org or 563-468-7078.
