Des Moines Arts Festival® Partners with Civic Music Association for the Jazz and Wine Pavilion by Meredith
Music Organization Works to Extend Music Appreciation Throughout the Community
Music continues to be a significant part of the Des Moines Arts Festival® and this year, a new partnership with Civic Music Association will make the event’s offerings even more diverse.
“This is Civic Music’s 89th season of bringing jazz and classical music to the metro area,” said Carrie Clogg, Civic Music Association Executive Director. “Our leadership had been exploring ways to grow our reach and the Des Moines Arts Festival presented the perfect opportunity for us to partner and brand what we do year around.”
“The Jazz and Wine Pavilion presented by Meredith allows us to bring local and Iowa musicians to the stage as well as regional talent from Chicago and Minneapolis,” added Clogg. “We’ve put together a lineup that has something for everybody. Jazz is so diverse so there will be Latin, New Orleans, crossover, traditional and Belin Quartet’s jazz interpretation.”
“We really wanted to focus on the Jazz and Wine Pavilion this year and get strong partners that could bring a top of the line experience in both jazz and wine,” said Stephen King, the event’s Executive Director. “Civic Music Association has really helped us achieve this goal with the best and most diverse jazz music we have ever hosted. The music in combination with the great wine selection provided by Gateway Market will definitely make the pavilion a ‘don’t miss’ at the festival.”
The Civic Music Association is sponsoring a student jazz jam session to kick off Des Moines Arts Festival on Friday at 11 a.m.
