Obviously you weren't listening closely. I'm paraphrasing here, but when Mary brought up "what if there aren't enough people willing to volunteer," he replied with "then we can look at the budget and consider buying a shuttle to pick up people to take them to vote." Burning down a school where children attended classes and housed many of the special needs students at the time is minor?…

Believe me, Adams County voters are not stupid. However they deserve to be educated. Jeff Scott (Jonathan Shonekase) will not be voted in as long as everyone knows the truth. I'm not sure why Jeffery Scott would think everyone has that short of a memory. Does anyone know of a free shuttle to Mexico? Siberia maybe? Anyone else willing to make a "donation" to send a shuttle to either place?

Festive Sounds Family Concert

1 year, 7 months ago by Paige Traeder

Concert will entertain you with traditional holiday favorites, fun new songs and offer a chance to participate in popular audience sing-alongs of familiar Christmas carols

The Quincy Symphony Orchestra, Chorus, and Youth Chorus will present FESTIVE SOUNDS FAMILY CONCERT at 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8 in the QJHS Morrison Theater, 14th & Maine streets. This combined Christmas concert is a wonderful way to usher in the holiday season!

QSO Music Director Bruce Briney will lead the orchestra in performances of many traditional and contemporary holiday pieces, including John Williams’ popular “Home Alone Suite.” This favorite from the iconic movie brings the orchestra together with the Quincy Symphony Chorus, directed by Dr. Phyllis Robertson, and the Quincy Area Youth Choruses, directed by Paul Shelor and Jessi Sparks.

“The Many Moods of Christmas” by Robert Shaw provides adult choral and orchestral collaboration of some of our best-loved carols. The four carols presented are familiar to all audiences, but the creative instrumentation and complex choral singing lift them far above ordinary holiday music.

“Bassoon it will be Christmas” is a fun, imaginative piece that features the QSO’s three bassoonists. The tongue-in-cheek arrangement by composer James Stephenson cleverly transforms famous bassoon excerpts from symphonic literature into well-known Christmas melodies.

The audience will have a chance to sing-along on favorite Christmas carols with the combined adult and youth choirs of 120 voices followed by the grand concert ending of Walter Harris’ spectacular arrangement of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

This fabulous concert has become a tradition for many. Surprises are planned as well!  Whether you’re planning a family gathering, or just giving yourself a special holiday treat, Festive Sounds is sure to be a highlight of the Christmas season!  

Tickets are available in advance at Sturhahn Jewelers, Quincy Hy-Vee stores, or at the door at a cost of $15 for adults and $12 for seniors. Children 18 and under are admitted free thanks to support from the Tracy Family Foundation.  

Flexi-tickets, which include six single-admission tickets to be used in any combination throughout the season, will be for sale at the concert for $60, pre-packaged in a special envelope perfect for gift giving. One flexi-ticket provides admission for a couple to attend QSOA concerts throughout the spring, making a lasting Christmas gift for music lovers on your list. Remaining concerts include the French Grandeur Young Artist’s Concert, Revisiting Childhood choral pops concert featuring Emily DePauw and Phil Touchette, and the American Classics orchestra finale showcasing popular music from American Theatre.

Festive Sounds is sponsored in part by Concert Sponsor Blessing Hospital, Media Sponsor KHQA, Music Sponsor Advance Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine, Encore! Symphony Volunteer Council, the Marion Gardner Jackson Trust Arts Fund, the business and individual members of the Quincy Society of Fine Arts, and by the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
