Des Moines Symphony Tickets

The Des Moines Symphony holds a full season each year during which it performs a chamber series, a fine arts series and collaborative performances with the Ballet Quad Cities and the Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre. Its home is the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines.

The Des Moines Symphony began as the Des Moines Civic Orchestra back during the twenties. After several years, it became a permanent group, and performed its first concert at the Hoyt Sherman Place in 1937 as part of a joint effort between musicians from Drake University and members of the community. The concert was conducted by Frank Noyes, professor at Drake University, who became the first conductor of the orchestra.

The Des Moines Symphony first home was the Theodore Roosevelt High School, where it stayed for ten years. It then moved to the KRNT Theatre and then the Hoyt Sherman Place. A number of conductors performed with the university and in 1974, the orchestra became independent, having formerly been associated with Drake University. Under the leadership of Yuri Krasnapolsky, the classical season was doubled to six concert pairs from five single concerts. He also oversaw the move to the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines.

In 1989, Joseph Giunta joined the Des Moines Symphony as the musical director and conductor. Under his leadership, it fast gained a national reputation as one of the best, performing a regular series of Family, Pops, Masterworks and Education concerts. In 2003, it also founded the Des Moines Symphony Academy, becoming one of the very few orchestras in the US with an academy of music. In 2012 alone, this academy had four hundred and ten students.

This is thus an orchestra with a rich history and a vibrant presence on the stage. It is thus no surprise that each year, thousands of Des Moines Symphony tickets are sold to people from Iowa and other parts of the US.
