Roosevelt Junior, Campbell Helton, to perform with Des Moines Symphony

Natasha Paremski plays Rachmaninoff's thrilling, grand Third Piano Concerto in a passionate concert inspired by Beethoven's "Immortal Beloved" letters

“Ever thine. Ever mine. Ever ours.” So Beethoven closed a July 1812 letter to his “immortal beloved,” a woman whose identity has remained one of the great mysteries of classical music. Beethoven’s passionate love letters come alive in this musical celebration of great passion from Dobrinka Tabakova’s Dawn to Augusta Holmès’s La Nuit et L’Amour and more, featuring Des Moines actors Katy Merriman and James Serpento. Campbell Helton, a junior at Theodore Roosevelt High School and the 2020 winner of the Des Moines Symphony Academy Youth Orchestra’s Young Artist Competition, joins the Symphony to perform Moonlight Sonata; finally, this unique program is capped with a virtuosic tour de force as Russian-born pianist Natasha Paremski returns to play Rachmaninoff’s thrilling, grand Third Piano Concerto.

Join us live and in-person at the Civic Center Saturday, January 29 at 7:30pm and Sunday, January 30 at 2:30pm, or purchase a streaming pass to watch the Saturday concert anytime for 30 days.
