Des Moines Symphony’s new musician-curated “Spotlight” series

Posted on: May 1, 2018

On May 15, the Des Moines Symphony will launch a new concert series, Spotlight at the Temple, featuring music curated and performed by musicians from the orchestra at the Temple for the Performing Arts in Des Moines, a Beaux Arts building constructed in 1913 that was formerly a Masonic Temple and is on the National Register of Historic Places. At the first concert, ten musicians will perform in the round in a program featuring Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango, Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major, Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras No. 6, and Peter Schickele’s Serenade for Three. Cocktails will be available before and after the concert, a pre-concert hors d’oeuvres reception will be hosted by Music Director Joseph Giunta, and musicians will remain to mingle with audience members after the concert.
