Yo-Yo Ma to Play With Quad City Symphony Orchestra
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) -- Composer and famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma is coming to eastern Iowa in 2015.
The Quad City Symphony Orchestra announced Wednesday that Ma will perform with them in a special concert on May 14, 2015, at the Adler Theatre in Davenport.
The early announcement is part of the orchestra's preparation to celebrate its 100th season. That will run from fall 2014 through spring of the following year.
Benjamin Loeb, executive director of the orchestra, says the Riverboat Development Authority is providing a two-year grant to help support the performance. Additional details on repertoire and tickets will be announced at a later time.
