Kick off our 97th season with rising stars straight from the nation’s largest chamber music competition! In the ranks of past champions including Joshua Bell, Tessa Lark, and the ensemble Eighth Blackbird, the Gold Medal Winners of the prestigious Fischoff Competition will bring fresh virtuosity to the Des Moines stage. This year’s winners are saxophone quartet Mixed Media, from the Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia.

Committed to music education, the Fischoff also partners with competition alumni to bring free, innovative Arts-in-Education programs directly to children in their own schools and community centers.
