The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra (DSO) is excited to announce that the 2017 Pursuit of the Podium winner is Harriet Heitzman! Heitzman is a dedicated community volunteer and has been an avid supporter of the DSO since its very beginnings.
From February 1 to April 24, five local celebrities raised money on behalf of the DSO. Heitzman 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 25, 2017.
This year’s Pursuit of the Podium contestants also included Dr. Teresa “Terry” Eckhart – physician at Dubuque Obstetrics & Gynecology; Robert “General Bob” Felderman – photographer, realtor/appraiser, pilot, and retired army general; Lynn H. “Tut” Fuller – market president at Dubuque Bank & Trust; and Gary Olsen – artist. Together the group raised $26,424 for the symphony!
