The Des Moines Symphony season will begin on Thursday, October 1 with the first of three livestreamed concerts in a new “Live from the Temple” concert format. The concert broadcasts, featuring a reduced-size orchestra spaced appropriately to ensure musician safety, will include special interviews and behind-the-scenes footage along with a live Q&A session with Maestro Joseph Giunta. No audience will be present; instead, performances will be livestreamed for at-home viewing.
