While the Des Moines Symphony’s traditional New Year’s Pops concert was called off, it is welcoming 2021 with a free virtual celebration at 7 p.m. on Dec. 31. Called “A Virtual New Year’s Eve Celebration,” the event features a star-studded lineup with performers like Leslie Odom Jr, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Brian Stokes Mitchell and more—along with symphony musicians. 

An enhanced experience is also available to those who decide to make a donation. Packages range from $120 to $500 and include dinner and wine packages, wine and cheese pairings, special gifts, recognition on the symphony’s website, and an invitation to a virtual meet and greet with symphony musicians before the main broadcast. Reservations (save your spot here) must be placed by today in order to receive the special gift, dinner or wine and cheese package.

Find more information on the Symphony website.
