Des Moines Symphony
The Des Moines Symphony Orchestra is one of Iowa’s and the Midwest’s premiere arts institutions. The mission of the Des Moines Symphony Association is to enrich, educate and inspire our community by performing great orchestral music.
Amid increasing concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, The Des Moines Symphony has come to the conclusion that they cannot reliably ensure the safety of their audiences or musicians onstage in order to perform the remaining in-person concerts scheduled through May 2021.
On December 31, the Symphony will host a Virtual New Year’s Eve Celebration packed with celebrity performances, appearances from Des Moines Symphony musicians, and more.
Beginning in January, each of the Spring Masterworks concerts will be converted to new livestreamed concerts as part of their Live from the Temple Series. These online concert broadcasts include interviews and behind-the-scenes features, and can be viewed on demand for 30 days following the initial performance.
