DES MOINES — The Des Moines Symphony continues its 2017-2018 80th Season with Stravinsky’s “Petrouchka” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018 at the Des Moines Civic Center (221 Walnut Street, Des Moines).
English conductor Christopher Seaman is renowned for his long and distinguished career leading orchestras here and abroad. At the invitation of Joseph Giunta, he leads the Symphony in “Petrouchka.” You’ll hear the strains of Russian folk songs and dazzling melodies in this historic collaboration between Stravinsky and Diaghilev at the Ballet Russes. But first, violinist Simone Porter returns to Des Moines by popular demand to play Sibelius’s brilliant, impassioned “Violin Concerto.” Her rendition of this virtuosic work will take your breath away.
