Save Our Scores

A Music Library Recovery Fundraiser

Orchestra Iowa Save Our Scores Music Fundraiser


On August 10th, 2020, the Orchestra Iowa Hankewich Music Library sustained substantial damage from the derecho that swept through our beloved community. Due to damage on the outside of the Orchestra Iowa building, a pipe burst and water rained on our treasured sheet music collection for hours before repairs could be made. This incident also affected several Orchestra Iowa School studios and part of Opus Concert Café.

It is estimated that we lost over $40,000 in printed music due to the damage of our library.

It has taken us months to mend this loss, and there is still a long way to go. So we are inviting you, our Orchestra Iowa family, to make a lasting impact on the future of our organization. By selecting a score to save, you not only become a very special donor, you become a vital part of Orchestra Iowa’s history.

We encourage you to browse the list of music below. Each listing includes both the conductor’s score and musicians’ parts. Your support will be memorialized in the Hankewich Library for generations of music lovers with your name or the name of your chosen honoree(s) permanently inscribed on the cover of the score. In addition to recognition, you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity for your contribution, and your gift will be acknowledged in a dedicated list in Overture Magazine. It will be known for many years to come that this music was saved by you!

We can only accept one form of payment at checkout. If you would like to save a score as a group or use a different payment method for your contribution, please contact the Ticket Office at 319-366-8203.
