The Des Moines Symphony & Academy stands with those calling for inclusion, diversity, equity and justice. We strongly believe music and art can bring people together and heal a community. We pledge to listen, to learn, and to use our platform to inspire profound social change by engaging diverse artists, making equitable programming decisions, and broadening our community reach. We stand in solidarity with those who are fighting for a more equal and just future. Black Lives Matter.
