About Us

Chamber Music Quad Cities concludes its 2023-24 concert season with Violin and Voice, a look at how the canonical composers Beethoven and Debussy wrote for both violin and voice. Join us as Kyu Young Kim (violinist and artistic director of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra), Davenport native Lily Arbisser (soprano), and CMQC Co-director Thomas Sauer explore songs and sonatas by Beethoven and Debussy. Mr. Kim will also perform a solo-violin work by Indian-American composer Reena Esmail, and Ms. Arbisser will offer songs by Kurt Weill. The concert will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Davenport on Saturday, May 18th at 7:30 p.m.

Chamber Music Quad Cities—known familiarly as CMQC—presents classical concert music at affordable prices in comfortable settings. An outgrowth of many years of concert-giving in the Quad Cities by Davenport natives Gregory and Thomas Sauer, CMQC was founded in 1994. Together with pianist Robert Satterlee, the Sauer brothers established Chamber Music Quad Cities as a non-profit, 501(c)3 corporation in that year and began to enlist support from the community that has been consistent to this day. Violinist David Bowlin assumed the artistic direction of CMQC in 2007; upon his departure in the summer of 2017, the Sauer brothers returned as Artistic Co-Directors.

The CMQC concert season runs from the fall through the spring. For information on upcoming events, please see the Concerts page.
