Upcoming Arts And Culture Holiday Events

The Des Moines Symphony will perform its virtual holiday show in the Temple for Performing Arts.

For some holiday entertainment and cheer, check out these performances and shows:

Des Moines Symphony: On Dec. 17, the Symphony will perform a livestreamed concert called “Winter Fantasia,” playing scores from Johann Bach to William Boyce. Tickets are $20. The Symphony will host events leading up to the event, including a conversation with Eric McIntyre of Grinnell College about the music.

Noce: This popular downtown jazz club is hosting a week of holiday-themed performances this week, with shows continuing through Sunday. Find the full list here.

Des Moines Community Playhouse: The theater is presenting its own rendition of the holiday classic, “Miracle On 34th Street.” The story is told through a 1940s radio booth. In-person performances run through Dec. 20 at the John Viars Theatre. A recording will be available through Dec. 27.

Gateway Dance Theatre: This organization’s holiday performance will be virtual-only. Called “A New Day,” the story, a spin on the nativity scene, covers the birth of a son to a migrant couple in a garage, attracting such joyful attention that the police plan to arrest the parents for disturbing the peace. The performance will be available Dec. 12-31 on Gateway Dance Theatre’s social media platforms.
