Des Moines Symphony Hosts West Coasters

Violinist Aubree Oliverson performs this weekend with the Des Moines Symphony.

Hailing from the south edge of Los Angeles, Pacific Symphony Music Director Carl St. Clair guest-conducts the Des Moines Symphony in two performances this weekend at the Des Moines Civic Center.

The program features John Wineglass’ “Alone Together,” which the Emmy-winning composer wrote as a tribute to George Floyd. The program also includes Tchaikovsky’s powerfully atmospheric “Pathétique Symphony” (No. 6, which was mistranslated from its original “passionate” title) and Max Bruch’s dazzling Violin Concerto featuring 20-something, Los Angeles-based violinist Aubree Oliverson and her 280-something Italian violin.

The concerts start at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $15-$70 and available online or at the Civic Center ticket office.
