Under the direction of Maestro William Intriligator, the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra (DSO) creates exceptional live musical experiences that challenge and inspire audiences. Their mission is to engage the tri-state community and enrich its quality of life through musical performances and educational programs. They strive for artistic achievement, innovation, and commitment to our community.
The DSO returns to the Mississippi Moon Bar at the Diamond Jo Casino Friday, January 19 and Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 8:00pm for its Ultimate Rock Hits concerts.
The orchestra joins with local rock bands to present an amazing symphonic rock experience that features chart topping hits from the 1970’s to the present -a unique collaboration that has never failed to bring the house down!
“This year’s music has great strength and power behind it,” said Joie Booth, show co-founder, coordinator, and vocalist. “Music that makes you drive your car a little bit over the speed limit or forces you to run a little farther. Music that lights you on fire and inspires you to reach the next level!”
“We are always excited to bring in new singers, expanding our reach into the wide range of talented rockers in this region, and bringing in their devoted fans as well,” said William Intriligator, Music Director and Conductor of the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra. “Emily Webb from Few Blind Mice and Katie Keoperlich from Boogie Monster join us this year and we also welcome back Joie Booth, Adam Beck and Lexi Parr.”
“I’m also really excited about the mix of songs – We have a wide range of styles and time periods represented. Many favorites by bands like Volbeat, Alice in Chains, Kings of Leon, The Doors, Bruno Mars, and the late great Tom Petty. We have some exciting orchestra features planned, as well!”
