The name says it all: Mardi Gras! We are pleased to perform a wide variety of music that will depict not only Mardi Gras and the New Orleans jazz sound, but great celebration pieces by icons of classical composition will be performed as well. Gershwin, Offenbach, Dvorak, and many others will warm the auditorium with the feeling of a large symphonic party.

Our annual Young Artist Competition performance, sponsored by the Howe Foundation, will not only feature the high school aged winner of our solo competition but we will be welcoming the Muscatine High School orchestra to our performance as well. The MSO will be performing music that celebrates youth from many different time periods. A symphony written by Mozart when he was fifteen years old, a Rachmaninov "Youth Symphony" as well as music from today's popular video games will be among the many works presented at this exciting concert.

A unique and special concert event will be featured on our final concert of the season. The Harmonica Concerto by Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos will be performed by world-renown musician, Robert Bonfiglio. He continues to energize and captivate audiences around the world with his phenomenal musicianship on the harmonica. This work is the centerpiece of a concert devoted to music inspired by and written by Latino composers and cultures. Some beautiful works of music from a region of the world rich in culture, passion, and amazing music will be performed as the finale to this MasterWorks season!
