Ballet cuts and changes
Carl has defined cuts that are expected in the music for the ballet:
Orchestra rehearsals for the Ballet Des Moines program began Tuesday, February 13 at Grace. Check Rehearsal Audio page for links to listen to the music. Rehearsals the final week are at the Civic Center, 6:00-9:00 p.m., Tuesday through Friday (please be in place ready to play by 6:15 p.m.), food provided at 5:00 p.m. courtesy of Ballet. It is understood your employment obligations take precedence over the volunteer music schedule - do your best to juggle as you are able.
Blast from the past
Back in our 20th season, 1995-1996, DMCO appeared on the weekday TV program, "CBS This Morning," hosted by Paula Zahn and Harry Smith (Harry was gone that broadcast day). Every day the show featured a different group from around the country performing their theme song. Click HERE to see DMAS on the program, and the comments from local CBS affiliate, KCCI.
Most members pay their dues promptly - $20.00 for each concert that you intend to perform. If you are behind on this obligation please contact Loren Stoneberg or Carolyn Knittle who can receive your payment. Fellowships are available for members who need financial help with dues - just ask Loren or Carolyn or any other board member to arrange that.
As rehearsal details are known, we'll post them below.
Details can and do change, so please check back weekly. Times are
approximate and can vary.
Weekly rehearsals are Tuesdays 7:00-9:30 p.m. at Grace United Methodist. New members are always welcome.
