It's seems like forever ago since we last were able to sit and enjoy a live concert. Well Quincy Symphony Orchestra is back for in-person concerts for 2021.

The first concert is being called "New Beginnings" and will kick off on April 17 with a concert held at the Morrison Theater in Quincy Junior High. In a press release sent out today,

The concert opens with Haydn’s joyful “Symphony No. 6 (subtitled “The morning”) which uses individual instruments of the ensemble in an almost concerto-like fashion. Listeners will hear solos by the flute, violin, cello, bassoon, and double bass. Haydn’s original ensemble included only 10-15 musicians, so this context fits well with the QSO’s restricted forces this pandemic year.

This concert will be a full-scale production, with both musicians and audience member being socially distance in the theatre. Face coverings will be required while watching the concert. I think we are all ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy every single genre of music that we can see live and not through a computer screen. I am hopefully that this will not be the last in-person concert series we will get in the Tri-State Area.

Advance tickets for the "New Beginnings" concert are highly requested to help the QSO staff with planning. Tickets are $15 for seniors (62 and older), $18 for adults, and free to children. Buy at QSOA.org, at the QSOA office at 1026 Maine St., or by calling 217-222-2856.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
