• Our Mission

    The River Music Experience (RME) exists to give Quad-City residents and visitors opportunities to experience America's music, and most especially the music of the Mississippi River, through live music performances and programs which nurture, educate and inspire musicians, and music appreciators.
    In short...The RME is a non-profit performing arts center providing opportunities for the community to listen to, learn about, and play music.
