The Queen City Community Orchestra (QCCO) is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteer musicians from all around the Charlotte Area. QCCO is the oldest existing orchestra in Charlotte. Mr. Aleo Sica, a master violinist and conductor, founded the orchestra in 1969 and conducts the orchestra to this day.
QCCO is a string orchestra with violins, violas, cellos and basses. We invite musicians of all skill levels to come and play, and no auditions are required.
We practice every Monday night at 7:30pm from September through May in the Hance Fine Arts Center at Charlotte Country Day School.
We play two concerts every year, usually one in December and one in May. Admission is free and we invite everyone to come, with the opportunity to
contribute food or other necessities for local charities.
The concert will be held Thursday night May 30th, 2013 at 8:00 p.m in the Gorelick Theater at Charlotte Country Day School.
Admission is free and all we ask is that you bring a little non-perishable food to donate to the Second Harvest Food Bank. There will be collection containers at the door.
There is plenty of comfortable seating and you'll get to meet all the musicians and the conductor during the intermission.
We have a great group of musicians with us this semester. Our viola section has grown from three to eight!
There are also new cello players, new violin players and a whole new collection of music. Our fabulous conductor is back once again with a new twist that involves a Theremin.
Don't miss this exciting event!
