BRAHMS Symphony No. 3 
JENKINS Mathias and the Storm, New Work, DSO commission - WORLD PREMIERE
BRUCH  Scottish Fantasy -  Robert Zimansky, violin   

The orchestra welcomes violinist and Iowa native Robert Zimansky back to the USA from his home in Switzerland, where he is Concertmaster of the Orchestra of the Swiss Romande. Zimansky performs Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy: a beautiful musical homage to the folk music of Scotland.  This concert also features Brahms’ Third Symphony, with its gorgeous slow movement, and the world premier of Mathias and the Storm, a new composition by Dubuque native composer Derek M. Jenkins. This piece is inspired by the folklore that Bishop Mathias Loras has blessed Dubuqe so no tornadoes would touch the city.

program notes will be available this fall
