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

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.

Fantastic concert, as Grand Rapids has a superb Symphony Orchestra. Wonderful selection of pops type music with about half instrumental and half including soloists. This happens every New Years Eve and we'll definitely do it again. As noted in a hotel review, we stayed at the Prince Conference Center on the Calvin College campus and that completed a really special... More

One of the finest, if not THE finest, regional symphony orchestra in the country. Concerts are always first rate. There is also a wide variety of concert experiences; Classical series, Rising Star series, Pops series, Symphonic Boom (pop culture hits), Great Eras series, Coffee Classics, Family series, Lollipops, and other special events. The symphony chorus and youth chorus have the... More
