The Temple for Performing Arts

Grand Hall (Fourth Floor)

Spotlight at the Temple is an exciting new concert experience curated by Des Moines Symphony musicians and performed in a unique, intimate atmosphere. Grab a cocktail and experience our musical artistry up close and personal as our musicians take center stage – with a few surprises along the way.

At our May event, three small chamber ensembles will perform in the round, offering up-close connections to a wide variety of music. After the concert, stay and mingle with musicians as the bar stays open for an informal post-concert reception.

Between ensembles, the Symphony’s Principal Harpist, Erin Brooker-Miller, will perform selections on the Irish Harp. As a representative of the United States, Erin has competed and won numerous awards at All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoils, the highest level traditional Irish music competition held annually in Ireland. Selections will be announced from the stage.
