Harry Potter and Quad City Symphony make music together

The Adler Theatre was full of Harry Potter fans and symphony aficionados on Saturday for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra‘s live performance accompanying the entire film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

It was fabulous and amazing and delightful. As 10-year-old Anora put it: “I don’t know if I can ever watch the movie without thinking about this experience!” Her 8-year-old brother was even more impressed, “This was a life changer!”

Peppa Pig Live!

If you are a parent, you are very likely familiar with Peppa Pig. This show is a kid favorite found on Nick Jr. – following Peppa, her brother George, and their friends and family. The show reaches nearly 73 million households every day.

Quad City Symphony Orchestra: The 101st Year with The Magical Music of Disney

This is the 101st year of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra and celebration is in the air!  Since I was ready to get into the celebratory holiday mood, on Sunday, December 6, my friend and I attended Masterworks III: Winter Fun – Mozart and More! by the Quad City Symphony Orchestra. The Sunday symphony concerts are held at Centennial Hall at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois.

Night with The Illusionists was packed with magic and laughter

If you’ve never seen a live magic show, add The Illusionists to your bucket list.

Illusionists Davenport Iowa2

I’ve never been to Las Vegas, but I think this show gave me a great (Midwest) taste of the strip! There were magical illusions that kept you guessing. There were mysteries that kept you asking, “How?”

First, I tried to figure out how everything was happening. Where was a trap door? Is that a new person? What just happened?
