World Class Orchestra

I have been consistently impressed with the musicianship of the orchestra here in Grand Rapids. The new Pops series is a winner!

In spite of Grand Rapids being a small city the GR Symphony is top notch. We are season ticket holders for the "Pops" and consider the cost of seasons tickets to be money well spent.

We attended our 2nd Holiday Pops concert this year and originally did two years ago. Comparing the two, the first time was more lively and fun, however they can't do the same concert every year so I understand that they have to mix it up. I would go for the $18 seats on level three in the middle. The view... More

The Grand Rapids Symphony was great. We were in town for Art Prize, from Texas, and decided to try the symphony. While we may have been younger than most in the audience, it was a good time. The musicians were great. The ticket price was great as well. If you like culture, and/or want to try a symphony, I would... More

Everything about the GR Symphony was perfect: Top-notch artist, excellent equipment, a genius maestro combined with a wide selections of musical arts. "Sound of the Eagles" was simply splendid!

The GR symphony is VERY good! I mean SUPREMELY good. I don't consider myself an aficianado, but I've heard other symphonies in major cities and our own compares, IMHO, really well. Every time I take in a performance, I leave awed by the talent we are blessed to have in our own backyard. Thank you GR Symphony for enriching our... More

Cannonsburg Ski are is transformed to a wonderful summer venue for listening to some great sounds from the Grand Rapids Symphony. We went with friends to listen to the sounds of the Eagles and they certainly didn't disappoint anyone! A great place to pack in some wine and cheese and enjoy a great Michigan summer evening!

to describe the quality that is the Symphony. Each performance brings the audience to its feet. A wide variety of gifted guests mesmerize and inspire. Under the genius of Maestro David Lockington, the long together musicians have created flawless performances. Unforgettable evenings await. Lynn

The GR Symphony plays at Cannonsburg Ski Lodge Thursdays and Fridays in July. Every week the music varies. Usually one week is traditional symphony music. Last night I listened to Beatles music played by the symphony (cover band included!!) Guests can either buy a ticket there at the door or in advance. The ski lodge allows you to bring in... More
