Iowa Public Radio’s Performance Iowa presents Orchestra Iowa Chamber Players’ Opus Inauguration Chamber Concert. Following the floods of 2008, the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids, Iowa was closed due to severe damage. In restoration, teams worked to replicate the designs of the first Paramount built in 1920. This concert was monumental as it marked the reopening of a special intimate performance space adjacent to the Paramount Theater’s Hall of Mirrors. Works performed include Beethoven’s String Trio in C minor, Op. 9, No. 3, Daugherty’s Diamond in the Rough, and Mozart’s Quintet
for Clarinet and Strings, K. 581.
