"Orchestra Iowa is proud to continue our mission of serving our great state in this partnership with the combined choruses of Simpson College and the Des Moines Vocal Arts Ensemble. Written during the same time as his ninth symphony, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis is widely considered to be one of his supreme achievements, and one of the greatest monuments in the symphonic/choral literature. Rarely heard in live performance, this concert represents yet another first in Orchestra Iowa's 94-year-old concert history."

Featuring: Mary Wilson, soprano; Renée Rapier, mezzo soprano; Eric Barry, tenor; Sumner Thompson, bass
