2018 Pursuit of the Podium Winner Announced

Pursuit of the Podium Candidates Raise Over $37,000 for Dubuque Symphony Orchestra

(DUBUQUE) – The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra (DSO) is excited to announce that the 2018 Pursuit of the Podium winner is John B. Donovan!

From February 1 to April 9, four local celebrities raised money on behalf of the DSO.  Donovan raised the most funds and, as a result, will take Maestro Intriligator’s place on the podium to conduct one selection at the free Summer Melodies concert which will be held at the Dubuque Arboretum at 6:30 pm, June 24, 2018.

This year’s Pursuit of the Podium contestants also included Eric Lucy, Maria J. McDonald and Pat Zelinskas Piekenbrock. Together the group raised over $37,000 for the symphony!

Funds generated from Pursuit of the Podium will support the DSO’s overall mission, which is to engage the tri-state community and enrich its quality of life through live musical performances and educational programs. Now in its 59th season, the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra serves approximately 20,000 tri-state area residents each year and are proud to present world-class musical experiences for the entire community to enjoy.
