    Event History

    Considered one of the most preeminent pianists of our time, Emanuel Ax will join Orchestra Iowa in our efforts to support our Education and Outreach programs. Remarkably, Mr. Ax sought out Orchestra Iowa, from the over 1,200 orchestras in the United States, as part of his personal mission to share his talents with smaller, deserving communities and boost the capacity of quality regional orchestras. He is providing his week-long residency completely for free, making him Orchestra Iowa’s largest sponsor in the coming year. Orchestra Iowa’s educational initiatives serve over 17,000 eastern Iowa youth annually. Most of these unique and engaging learning opportunities, like Music in the Schools, Fifth Grade Fiddles, and Pied Piper to name a few, are provided to the children for free.
