Des Moines Symphony and Academy


The Des Moines Symphony Orchestra, celebrating its 73rd season in 2010-11, is Central Iowa’s largest and most active professional performing arts-producing organization. Led by Music Director Joseph Giunta for the past 22 years, the Orchestra has established an outstanding national reputation as one of the country’s leading regional orchestras, performing a regular series of Masterworks, Pops, Family and Education Concerts, as well as performing for special events. With the establishment in 2003 of the Des Moines Symphony Academy, the organization is one of only a handful of American orchestras to sponsor an Academy of Music as an integral part of its core mission. The Symphony & Academy together are now the largest employer of professional artists in Iowa.
