BRAHMS  Academic Festival Overture
KROMMER  Concerto for Two Clarinets & Orchestra in E-flat Major
ORFF  Carmina Burana

The Des Moines Symphony began in 1937 as the Drake/Des Moines Symphony and with these concerts, we celebrate that important partnership and honor the Orchestra’s rich history with Drake University. You’ll experience Orff’s monumental and provocative Carmina Burana with massed choirs—musical grandeur and power that will raise the roof of the Civic Center! These concerts are presented by EMC Insurance Companies. Concert Prelude Talks begin 45 minutes prior to each Masterworks concert in the East Lobby.
