The Des Moines Symphony is a not-for-profit, professional orchestra formed in 1937 to enrich, educate and entertain the community by performing great orchestral music. The Symphony Association, governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees and operating on an annual budget of more than $2.8 million, supports the Symphony Academy and its numerous music education programs including three youth orchestras, and supports the Des Moines Symphony Orchestra which performs seven pairs of Masterworks concerts, the traditional pops performance on New Year’s Eve, education, outreach and family concerts,  and other special events in its home at the Des Moines Civic Center. The Des Moines Symphony also produces and performs the annual Yankee Doodle Pops concert in July on the grounds of the Iowa State Capitol, which for the past several years attracted more than 100,000, the largest single day attendance of any concert event in the State.  -DMSO-
