The Fine Arts Council of Mitchell County will sponsor a trip to see opera great Simon Estes, along with the Luther College Nordic Choir, in a special appearance with the Des Moines Symphony on Sunday, April 28, at the Civic Center in Des Moines.
The council will subsidize a portion of the cost, allowing concert-goers here to have both bus transportation and a ticket to the concert for $25. A bus will leave Osage at 11 a.m. for the 2:30 p.m. performance.
Estes will perform selections from Gershwin’s “Porgy & Bess,” with the Des Moines Symphony. Luther College’s celebrated Nordic Choir will perform Bernstein’s choral masterpiece “Chichester Psalms,” and Shostakovich’s “Festive Overture.”
Many will recall Estes’ performances here in 2013, during his “Roots and Wings” tour of Iowa.
Those interested should reserve a seat by March 15, by calling Patrick Mackin, 210-213-6946, or at: email@example.com.
