Des Moines Civic Center (221 Walnut Street, Des Moines)

Elena Urioste has been praised for her “hypnotic delicacy,” “expressive poise” and “lyrical sensitivity,” and she makes her Des Moines Symphony debut in Glazunov’s virtuosic Violin Concerto. The program opens dramatically with Beethoven’s beloved “Pastoral” Symphony, which evokes the beautiful countryside including a rollicking thunderstorm that dissipates into one of the most famous melodies in the symphonic repertoire: the Shepherd’s Song. The program concludes with Rimsky’s rhythmic and exotic Capriccio Espagnol.

Tickets: Single tickets are $15-$60 and are available through Ticketmaster (up until two hours prior to performances) and the Civic Center Ticket Office (221 Walnut Street, Des Moines; open 9a-5p Monday through Friday and two hours prior to performances). Student tickets are $7.50-$30 and are available through the Civic Center Ticket Office. Student rush tickets, subject to availability, are $5 for junior high and high school students and $10 for all other students the day of the concert through the Civic Center Ticket Office.
