Scottish Rite Consistory - Auditorium

519 Park Street

Des Moines, IA  50309


The Central Iowa Wind Ensemble opens our 14th season with a family friendly concert for all ages. We are thrilled to share an exciting and varied program on this the eve of Halloween! From movie medleys to concert marches, circus music and a piece where each of you get to name one of the compositions, there’s certain to be music that satisfies everyone’s taste buds.

We also welcome to the stage our special guests, The Heartland Youth Choir’s Cantilena Choir, to enchant us with their voices and join the wind ensemble for a combined group that will fill the beautiful Scottish Rite Consistory Auditorium with some hair-raising melodies.

Children (and adults) are encouraged to where their costumes and will have plenty of time to make it back home for trick-or-treat night.
