The Quincy Symphony Chorus performs “Sun, Moon & Stars”

The romantic influence of the sun, moon and stars is highlighted during the Quincy Symphony Chorus spring pops concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 5 at Salem Church at 9th & State Streets in Quincy. 

This celestial concert includes popular hits “Moon River,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Starry, Starry Night,” and many others, accompanied by piano, guitar, ukulele, bass and drums.  Soloists include Kristin Ramseyer, soprano, Lisa Blake, mezzo-soprano and Josh Ramseyer, baritone. 

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.
