135 Live!

The Grand’s Signature Concert Series

Presented by The Grand Opera House and Premier Bank, 135 Live! is a concert series featuring live music on the historic stage of the Grand Opera House. The concert is presented to a live audience as well as streamed live.  

135 Live! was conceived during 2020, the year that dealt many difficult blows to the whole of the entertainment industry, as a fundraiser for the Grand Opera House and a way to showcase the incredible local talent in the Dubuque area.

As part of The Grand’s mission it is our goal to be a venue for the community, providing a space for theater, music, and dance, as well as inspiring our community through support of the arts. By providing a place to showcase local, regional, and national musicians during the pandemic and beyond we are making good on that promise to the Dubuque community.
