The Franklin Avenue Library welcomes The Belin Quartet. The quartet is well known in the greater Des Moines community for their free noon-time concerts during the summer. Members of the quartet include violinists Julie Fox Henson, John Helmich, Tracy Engman Finkelshteyn, violist Sherida Josephson, and cellist George Work. The Belin Quartet was established in 2000 by a generous grant to the Civic Music Association from David Belin's charitable foundation, the Iowa Foundation for Education, Environment, and the Arts.
