Des Moines Symphony Concludes 2016-2017 Season with Masterworks 7: American Gothic and Bolero


DES MOINES – The Des Moines Symphony concludes its 2016-2017 79th Season with “American Gothic and Bolero” 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 14, 2017 at the Des Moines Civic Center (221 Walnut Street, Des Moines).

Virtuoso cellist Matt Haimovitz makes his Des Moines Symphony debut in a program that stretches from Spain to France and all the way back to Iowa. Hear the music of Hindemith, composed to showcase the virtuosity of American orchestras, and Saint-Saëns’s beautiful “First Cello Concerto.” Iowa native Michael Daugherty’s “American Gothic” is accompanied by our world-premiere film celebrating Grant Wood’s Iowa. Finally, our season reaches its zenith with Ravel’s beloved, driving, hypnotic “Bolero.”


Joseph Giunta, conducting

Matt Haimovitz, cello
