Continuing the tradition of providing quality music since its founding in 1949, the Fort Dodge Area Symphony presents its 2014-15 concert season under its Musical Director and Conductor Joshua Barlage, the Managing Director of the Des Moines Symphony Academy. For more information about him, please go to his page by clicking on his name above.

Mr. Barlage has indicated his plans for the coming year by the following quote. "During our 65th year, we bring you another exciting season of the very best in seasoned classics and passionate works by living composers. Soloists will include Julie Fox Henson who is the Assistant Concertmaster of the Des Moines Symphony. Ms. Henson will dazzle us with her rendition of Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3 in our third concert."

You can see the programs for each of the four concerts by using the "Concert Season" choice on the menu at the top of the screen. More details will be added when they become available, especially for our fourth concert once the winners of the Young Artists auditions have been chosen.

The Symphony Board and Mr. Barlage are excited about our 65th season. We are sure you will also be excited once you experience the beautiful music in our concerts. Please join us for what promises to be a very special concert season.
