QC Symphony Will Perform Rolling Stones Songs @ Riverfront Pops
This year the Quad City Symphony Orchestra's Riverfront Pops concert, held on the levee in LeClaire Park, Davenport Saturday, August 21 @ 7:30 p.m. will include songs by the Rolling Stones.
The Riverfront Pops concert is one of the Quad Cities most beloved performances. If you've never gone before, do it this year. People go all out for this event; I've even seen folks bring tables, candles, chandeliers and a food spread that compares to a five star restaurant's feasts.
Get ready to bring your picnic supplies, lawn chairs and blankets to the LeClaire Park Bandshell along the river in Davenport while the Quad City Symphony Orchestra performs The Rolling Stones' greatest hits from the iconic albums Beggar’s Banquet and Let It Bleed, including “Sympathy For The Devil,” “Midnight Rambler,” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want!”
In addition to songs from the Rolling Stones' catalog, the concert closes with the traditional renditions of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever set to a brilliant fireworks display. Get there early and enjoy a pre-show from the Quad City Youth Orchestra. Gates open at 4 pm, Youth Symphony performs at 6:30 and the main event starts at 7:30.

Leave your dogs at home but it's fine to bring your own food and beverages. You can also buy food at LeClaire Park. It's going to be a fun time.
