  • Overview

    Our 81st Season, ‘Giunta Celebrates Bernstein,’ continues with Leonard Bernstein’s first musical – On the Town. His rhythmic, energetic valentine to New York comes to life in a colorful program that features three of the Des Moines Symphony’s principal musicians as soloists – first in Bernstein’s jazz-inflected clarinet showpiece Prelude, Fugue and Riffs, then in Mozart’s sparkling, elegant Flute & Harp Concerto. After intermission, listen as Sibelius’s rich, melodic First Symphony conjures the wintry landscape of his native Finland.
