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!

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

The Grand Rapids Symphony provides a consistently superior experience across multiple genre of musical arts. The performance space seems to have no poor seating in acoustical terms. The acoustics provide an appropriate environment to support nuanced performances by soloists, ensembles, and the entire orchestra in many different stagings. I personally think it his a fantastic value, and so I have... More

The Grand Rapids Symphony is excellent. When we travel we try and make a point to visit the symphony of the town we are in. Since we live in Grand Rapids we get to experience our home symphony and they are amazing.

We find the Grand Rapids Symphony one of the best and most versatile symphonies in our experience. Excellent quality concerts with outstanding guest artists are standard. Then you have the Christmas Specials for families with great music and light-hearted fun, complete with "Santa" showing up to direct the orchestra. Outside pops concerts in the summer - our favorite is the... More

The Grand Rapids Symphony always does a SUPER job with their New Year's Eve Concerts! We have attended these for several years now and always look forward to something excellent and fun! This year was just as good and as special as previous years and we look forward to what creative things they will come up with in the future.
