DM Symphony - MW6: APRIL IN PARIS
Franco-Belgian sensation Camille Thomas, the first cellist signed in 40 years by the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label, joins the Des Moines Symphony direct from the City of Lights for a concert featuring the works of Elgar, Debussy, and Offenbach. The concert opens with Elgar’s jaunty, jubilant Polonia and concludes with the colorful can-can from Offenbach’s Gaite Parisienne. But first, you’ll thrill to hear Debussy’s ethereal Clair de Lune and Elgar’s searing, rhapsodic Cello Concerto played with poignancy and passion by Ms. Thomas.
“It was really amazing to get to perform on the Civic Center stage, to see what the professional touring shows see when they perform.”
