"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."
