From last night's concert performances with the Des Moines
Symphony at the Iowa State Fair.
"The interlude from the talent competition on the Riley
Stage was capped by a song by Broadway singer and actor Hugh
Panaro from Brooklyn, New York, who was also scheduled to
perform Thursday night at the fair with the Des Moines Symphony.
Panaro unleashed a heart-wrenching rendition of 'Bring Him Home'
from 'Les Miserables.' It had all the feel of an elegy. We often
describe the State Fair as unrelentingly loud, boisterous and
crass, but these small, touching moments are as much a part of
it if you stop to notice."
