Mission Statement

The Queer Urban Orchestra (QUO) is a musical organization dedicated to the promotion of fine arts in the New York City metropolitan area whose membership is open to all adult musicians regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity. QUO strives to entertain and educate members and audiences alike through performances of classical and contemporary music, promoting equality, understanding, acceptance, and respect.

Description

QUO was founded in July 2009 as planning meetings started for NYC’s first orchestra specifically serving the LGBTQ community. Our first season kicked off with our Debut Concert on December 5, 2009, for which we began rehearsing on September 16, 2009. Since our inaugural concert our membership has grown to 60 musicians. We rehearse Wednesday evenings from 7-10 at the Church of the Holy Apostles in Chelsea, which is also our main concert venue. We have around 7 concerts a year.
