ABOUT THE BELIN QUARTET

The Belin Quartet was established in 1999 by CMA and David Belin. David Belin (1928-1999) 
was a prominent attorney, civic leader, and philanthropist who moved to Des Moines in 1954 and had a tremendous impact on the city during the last half of the 20th century.

A talented violinist himself, David Belin loved music. He also loved Des Moines, and with his trademark bow tie, he was an ever-present supporter of music and the arts in the city. Belin envisioned a community with the opportunity to share in the joys of classical music, which is realized through the Belin Quartet. After his death in 1999, David Belin’s children began making annual grants through the Foundation to underwrite the Belin Quartet, a generous act of philanthropy and civic leadership that continues to this day.

The Belin Quartet consists of alternating violinists Julie Fox Henson, John Helmich, and Tracy Engman Finkelshteyn, violist Jonathan Sturm, and cellist George Work.
