The Queens Symphony Orchestra (QSO) was founded in 1953 and is the oldest and largest performing arts organization in Queens. It provides an array of programs: a series of classical subscription concerts, concerts for young people, an in-school music education program, a youth gospel choir, an annual competition for young instrumentalists, free parks concerts, open rehearsals and a music referral service. In 1994, QSO launched an Audience Development program which aims to bring residents of ethnic diversity into the concert hall. The establishment of the Youth Gospel Choir is a product of this program. For additional program information or a concert schedule, call (718)786-8880 Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5PM.
