“Great value for a great symphony experience”

Des Moines Symphony
Ranked #33 of 72 things to do in Des Moines
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The Des Moines Symphony is a wonderful conglomeration of very talented artists. The director, Joseph Guinta is a master with the baton. The symphony performs at the Des Moines Civic Center. They have a season of 8-10 performances during the year, including the Pops performance on the Capital grounds every 4th of July. They provide a powerful classical experience for all! Enjoy!

For a city of Des Moines' size, we are fortunate to have a symphony of such quality. At the concert I attended, they played the Grieg Piano Concerto, with guest pianist Joyce Yang, and Mahler 5. What a fun evening.

Don't miss it. The concert season is always a highlight of the year. Sit as close to the front as you can afford. The Orchestra works very hard to put on a great performance. You will want to come back.

haven't been for awhile but surprisingly strong performances when last heard...just need to get back to some classic Beethoven a bit more often for my taste.

I have never been disappointed with the quality and depth of programs put on by the Des Moines Symphony. Maestro Giunta brings top notch guest talent.
