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!”
During the holiday season, the Quad Cities has many performances to get you into the holiday spirit. From theatre productions, The Nutcracker, and concerts, you won’t want to miss the festive presentations.

Fair Week in the Quad Cities is nothing short of legendary. It’s filled with country music, rock and the cool breeze (or in some cases, the heat wave) a summer night brings.
Add in the delicacy of fair food, lemonades and some beers, a couple spinny rides that you scream your head off, and livestock with baby animals…it’s a great time. Pile on the people that bring you the most joy in your life, and it can be the best event of the summer.
The Quad City Symphony Orchestra’s traveling piano has made its way around the Quad Cities landing at Augustana College’s Gerber Center for Student Life.
