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 premiere event, four 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.
