Emo Orchestra to play Hoyt Sherman Place

Emo lovers and orchestra aficionados rejoice. Emo Orchestra is bringing a unique experience to Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines on Nov. 3.

Emo Orchestra will be embarking on its inaugural tour this fall featuring special guests Hawthorne Heights, along with a full orchestra arrangement. The nationwide run kicks off on Sept. 27. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 30.

Emo Orchestra is a perfectly designed tribute to the music that shaped emo fans when the genre first exploded, but is tailored to the people its fans have become in the years since.

“Our goal with Emo Orchestra was to create an inclusive experience that appeals to a wide audience of music fans,” says Mench-Thurlow. “It’s an opportunity for early fans of the emo genre to share the music that we all loved with the next generation, and it was curated to be family friendly. The addition of the orchestra adds a cool texture and depth to these nostalgic hits and may also expose fans to instrumentation they’re less familiar with in a new setting. And orchestra lovers will experience what they enjoy with an exciting twist!”
