2019 Pursuit of the Podium
Three local individuals have been chosen to compete in this year’s fundraiser. The contestant that raises the most money on behalf of the DSO between now and April 8 will conduct one piece at the free Summer Melodies concert at the Dubuque Arboretum on Sunday, June 23, 2019.
The Pursuit of the Podium winner and total amount raised will be announced at the final classics concert of the 2018-19 season: April 13-14 at Five Flags Theater.
Pursuit of the Podium supports a variety of initiatives consistent with the DSO’s mission, which is to engage the tri-state community and enrich its quality of life through live musical performances and educational programs. The DSO serves approximately 20,000 people each year. Since Pursuit of the Podium was first introduced during the 2012-2013 season, twenty-three community leaders have participated and raised more than $135,000.
