Get Your Music Fix—Virtually

Emmy-nominated singer Michael Londra will perform virtually as a part of Stephens Auditorium’s livestream series.

Even during the pandemic, venues across the state have found ways to make music for an online audience. Here are a few places to put on your watch list when you’re craving live entertainment.

Arts Iowa: The University of Iowa has plenty of live music on the docket for the next few weeks. It begins tomorrow, with “Face Self / Face Truth,” which will mix music, performing arts and more to tackle social injustice. Additional concerts are scheduled through the beginning of April.

Noce: The Des Moines jazz club has been one of the best in the state at putting top-tier music online. You can check out every performance via stream on Noce’s YouTube page. This weekend, the venue will host a couple of shows, including Max Wellman and his septet, featuring Damani Phillips, a professor at the University of Iowa.

Stephens Auditorium: Iowa State University’s performing arts venue has gone global with its music, broadcasting international artists to its audiences. Now through March 1 is Ballet Hispanico, a renowned Latino dance group, which can be viewed virtually for $5. Up next is Ireland With Michael, featuring Irish singer Michael Londra, beginning March 17.
