David Hurd was a true friend of the Des Moines Music Coalition. His advocacy for DMMC attracted support from community leaders for the first 80/35 music festival. His vision guided DMMC through our early years and his leadership inspired us when times were tough. His generosity ensured programs like Music University and the soon-to-be-launched Artist Fellowship will serve the area’s music culture for years to come. David will be missed, but his legacy will live on in a vibrant Des Moines music community. Thank you, David.
