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 p.m., 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.
