We all miss the performing arts and live music. But there are a few organizations around Iowa putting on virtual shows you can enjoy from anywhere. Here are a few of our picks:
Mirrorbox Theatre: This Cedar Rapids theater company has moved to virtual play readings over Zoom. The free events, called “Out of the Box,” feature contemporary stories. Register here.
Des Moines Symphony: Iowa’s biggest symphony has mixed learning and entertainment in its “Live from the Temple” series. You can enjoy background from experts on musical scores and composers, meals from local eateries, and play trivia in the weeks leading up to each performance. Find the event calendar here.
Sioux City Symphony: This organization will have both in-person and virtual events this year. For those not in the immediate area, you can subscribe to a livestreaming platform, SCSO.Live. The cost is $6.99 after a free month’s trial. Included in the package are live access to each performance and on-demand replays.
