The Des Moines Symphony will present “Beethoven’s Violin Concerto,” which will feature scores from Beethoven, Anna Clyne and Jean Sibelius, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Center.

Paul Huang, a violinist and recipient of the prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, will take center stage for Beethoven’s “Violin Concerto,” the final act in the show. The symphony will open with Clyne’s “Masquerade,” which is “a rollicking tapestry of sound based on an old English drinking song,” organizers say, followed by Sibelius’ Symphony No. 7 in C Major. Tickets start at $15.
