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.

Our Mission

QUO was founded in July 2009. Since our inaugural concert our membership has grown to 60 musicians, and our collaborative efforts with The Danspace Project have resulted in praise from the New York Times.
