The Quincy Symphony Chorus hosts a British Invasion

Popular British pop songs take center stage at the Quincy Symphony Chorus spring concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 9 in Salem Evangelical United Church of Christ.

“British Invasion” is a magical musical tour from mop tops to folk songs to theatre hits. The chorus performs pops from favorite British artists including The Beatles, Queen, Elton John, Gilbert & Sullivan and many others.

The chorus, under the direction of Dr. Phyllis Robertson, is a regional singing group with members from many generations coming together weekly for the fellowship and the enjoyment of making music.

Tickets for “British Invasion” will be available at the door or in advance at Quincy County Market, Hy-Vee and Sturhahn Jewelers. The cost is $18 for adults and $15 for seniors. Thanks in part to support from the Tracy Family Foundation, children 18 and under are admitted free to all QSO concerts, and are encouraged to attend. The performance is made possible in part by Concert Sponsor Gardner Denver, Media Sponsor STARadio WTAD, and by the Illinois Arts Council Agency. Special thanks to our season sponsors Knapheide Manufacturing Company and Blessing Health System.

The $250 early bird drawing for the QSOA fundraising raffle will be held at the end of intermission.  Raffle tickets are for sale for $10 each or 12 for $100, and are available from any chorus, orchestra, Encore!, or board member.  The $1,000 grand prize drawing will be held at the Quincy Symphony’s Orchestra’s “American Salute” Finale Concert on April 13. The winner need not be present at the drawing. Raffle proceeds support the many programs of the Quincy Symphony Orchestra Association.  Visit or call the symphony office at 217-222-2856 for more information.
