String Ensemble

In addition to the orchestra, The Drake String Ensemble, conducted by Akira Mori, regularly performs off-campus throughout Des Moines and elsewhere as an outreach of the Drake Music Department. This ensemble is open to advanced string players. The Drake String Ensemble has done special performances, such as a benefit concert on the anniversary of the Japanese tsunami in order to raise funds for continued relief in Japan, Bach's Magnificat in D as part of a local arts series, and a tour of the Twin Cities with a performance of Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
