The Friday before each classics concert the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra League hosts a pre-concert luncheon called Sound Bites at the Dubuque Golf & Country Club.
A delicious buffet is followed by insightful commentary about the music by Music Director & Conductor William Intriligator. Guest soloists also attend and share information about their education, careers, concert experiences and thoughts about the music. Guest artists also bring their instruments and often perform short excerpts from the featured concerto.
Sound Bites is held from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. The cost is $15.00 per person, cash or check (payable to DSOL) at the door. Reservations are due the Tuesday before each Sound Bites. Make your reservation online or call the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra office at (563) 557-1677.
* Please note that if you make a reservation and find that you are unable to attend, we ask that you call to let us know you will not be joining us. If you fail to cancel your reservation, you will be held responsible for the cost of the lunch. Thanks!
