Those without a ticket to the sold-out Yo-Yo Ma - Quad-City Symphony Orchestra concert at the Adler Theatre in Davenport IA are still able hear the performance thanks to two public radio stations. 

Both WVIK-FM 90.3 and Iowa Public Radio's classical channel aired concert, preceded by excerpts from an interview with Ma at 7 p.m. Iowa Public Radio's classical music station is heard in the Quad-Cities at 91.7 FM.

Ma, an 18-time Grammy Award winner, will perform Dvorak's "Cello Concerto in B Minor" in the second half of the program. A regular part of Ma's repertoire. The first half will include Brahms' "Academic Festival Overture," which was written as a thank you to the University of Breslau and employing student drinking songs for musical material. The symphony will also perform Tchaikovsky's romantic "Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture."

The performance concludes the 100th anniversary season of the Quad-City Symphony Orchestra.
