The Nielsen Concert Series
The Nielsen Concert Series was begun by former Grand View president Ernest Nielsen in honor of his wife, Frances. This year's schedule brings to Des Moines award-winning performers from around the world. See the 2013-14 schedule HERE.
The Nielsen Concerts have traditionally been offered to the Grand View community and the public at no charge. As we attempt to bring world-class groups to Des Moines for the series, we would appreciate your generous donations to help us maintain and enhance the Nielsen Concerts. You may give at the concerts or make your donation online HERE.
We thank you!
