Unfortunately, the dems were able to put that one little word "intentionally"...meaning that they took a page out of Obama's book and will now all claim they didn't know anything about what, if anything, was being held from the public...

The one that was supposed to be passing out the petitions here in Adams County-- the one who signed it at the bottom, and got paid the money per signature, was from California. That was one of the reasons some of those petitions were discounted in Adams county.

Care to back up your statement with any facts? Also be sure to recognize that businesses don't really pay taxes....consumers do.

Saying and doing are different. My bet is that you would be for term limits but as demonstrated, what the people want will not happen, same with illegal immigration.

What petition for the Illinois libertarian party was passed around in California? And I would also be interested in why they didn't read what they were signing.

Festive Sounds Family Concert

1 year, 8 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. Special thanks are extended to our Season Sponsors: the Knapheide Manufacturing Company and Blessing Health System. More information on the Imagine season may be found at www.qsoa.org.
