This concert is SO GOOD, we had to do it twice! Come hear what chef Robert McConnell and the amazing musicians of the SEIB have cooked up for you this spring at the Southeast Iowa Band Spring Concert! This concert is perfect for families and local music students. If you've got a sweet tooth for great music, you'll love this concert!
Our spring concert features music from one of the most romantic countries on earth, France. We're thrilled to once again partner with the Southeast Iowa Symphony Chorus and IWU Choral Director Blair Buffington. The concert will begin with powerful selections from Saint Saën's Requiem, followed by the lush impressionistic sounds of Debussy's Images for Orchestra, No.2 Iberia. The season will conclude with Maurice Ravel's Daphnes et Chloe Suite No.2.
"our premier regional orchestra"
It's not that people don't like classical music.
It's that they don't have the chance to understand and to experience it.
-Gustavo Dudamel, L.A. Philharmonic
For more than 60 years, the Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra has provided the citizens of Burlington, Ottumwa, Mount Pleasant, and their surrounding communities with the opportunity to understand and experience classical music through rural outreach, educational opportunities, and quality musical performances. We are proud to offer concerts that are engaging and fulfilling for new listeners and seasoned veterans alike. In addition, the symphony offers free concerts and other educational outreach initiatives in communities throughout Southeast Iowa.
