Tickets sale for Des Moines Symphony’s virtual fall

DES MOINES — Tickets are now on sale for the Des Moines Symphony’s online Live from the Temple season, a new series of livestreamed concerts and events planned from September through December. Streaming concert passes are $15 and include a link and access code for one device.

Streaming pass holders can tune into these livestreamed concerts at home or from anywhere in the world and can replay them for a limited time after the live broadcast. The Symphony will provide ticketholders with detailed instructions for accessing these concert broadcasts, making it easy to enjoy them on a Smart TV, a laptop or even on a phone.

Filmed at the Temple for Performing Arts and broadcast live online, these concerts feature a reduced-size orchestra spaced appropriately to ensure musician safety. Each broadcast will include special interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, along with a post-concert Q&A session with Maestro Joseph Giunta.

Each of the three concerts in the Live from the Temple series will be preceded by a full week of online programming including classes, virtual social events, prelude talks and more.
