Des Moines Symphony’s Spotlight at the Temple: May 145/13/2019
The Des Moines Symphony will present the final concert in its 2018-2019 Spotlight at the Temple Concert Series on Tuesday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. Spotlight at the Temple is a unique concert experience curated by Des Moines Symphony musicians and performed in an intimate atmosphere.
At the May event, three small chamber ensembles featuring six Symphony & Academy musicians will perform in the round, offering up-close connections to a wide variety of music through narrative, artist collaborations, and audience engagement. After the concert, guests can 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.
Spotlight is part of the Des Moines Symphony’s ongoing efforts to reach new audiences and connect members of the community with its musicians and artists on a more intimate level by breaking out of the traditional concert setting. “Not only does Spotlight allow our musicians to take center stage, it breaks down the barriers between audiences and performers in a new and exciting way,” said Joseph Giunta, Music Director & Conductor of the Des Moines Symphony. “We’re thrilled to bring this unique concert experience to not only our longtime Symphony guests, but to new audiences as well.”
Tickets are $15 (General Admission) or $40 (VIP Reserved) and are available online at dmsymphony.org. VIP ticketholders will receive reserved cabaret table seating and a complimentary drink ticket. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
