Belin Quartet FREE Summer Concert Series!

Belin Quartet
The Belin Quartet, managed by Civic Music Association, will play a series of FREE noon-time concerts in downtown Des Moines beginning on Friday, May 30 at 12:15 p.m. The Belin Quartet consists of alternating violinists Julie Fox Henson, John Helmich, Tracy Engman Finkelshteyn, violist Sherida Josephson, and cellist George Work.
The Belin Quartet will perform at the Des Moines Social Club Courtyard, Des Moines Public Library Lawn, and a special appearance at the Des Moines Arts Festival in the Jazz & Wine Pavilion. All concerts are free and open to the public.
The Belin Quartet was established in the year 2000 by a grant to Civic Music Association by the Iowa Foundation for Education, Environment, and the Arts, a charitable foundation created by David Belin. His vision that the whole community should have the opportunity to share the joys of classical music is realized through the Belin Quartet.
The Belin Quartet 2014 Summer Concert Series will conclude with a special children’s concert, partnering with the Downtown branch of the Des Moines Public Library and with the Science Center of Iowa, on August 1, 2014.
