    MUSCATINE, Iowa–The Muscatine Symphony Orchestra returns to present two new performances for the Muscatine community. Around the world, performing arts organizations have received devastating blows from the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19. The MSO has not avoided similar effects.

    After months of planning, watching, and listening to local, state, and federal officials, the Symphony has worked with its Music Director and Conductor, Brian Dollinger, to find a way to bring new performances to life within our current constraints. With over 400 years of possible repertoire to choose from, musicians from the MSO will come together to perform on the previously scheduled concert dates of Oct. 10, and Nov. 14. They Symphony will make both concerts available electronically for free at 7:00 p.m. on their respective dates. Utilizing as much technology and as many relationships as possible to make these projects feasible, the Symphony will stream the performances via YouTube, the Muscatine Symphony Facebook page, and air them on MPW’s public access channel 9. With so many ways to enjoy these new performances, the Symphony hopes to lift the spirits of not only our usual audience members, but of those throughout the region who may not have joined us in previous seasons.

    Pieces the Symphony will perform includes some of the most well-known works in the symphonic repertoire as well as some lesser known works by major composers. Mozart, Mendelssohn, Rossini, and Vivaldi headline the two performances. Postponed guest artist from our April 2020 MasterWorks concert, guitarist Angelo Favis, will join the Symphony in their new environment to perform Vivaldi’s famous concerto for guitar.
