Quincy Symphony Orchestra Association’s Volunteer Organization, Encore! Symphony Volunteer Council, provides volunteer support at concerts, and sponsors fundraisers to benefit the Symphony and music education in general. While the majority of the proceeds directly support the performing and educational programs of the QSOA, Encore also awards approximately $3,500 in music camp scholarships and performance scholarships each year as well as provides financial support for music education at Quincy’s two high schools.
