“The variety of choices are outstanding”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

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 patriotic one close to July 4. These are but a few of the options to invite the tastes of all who value and enjoy high quality musical performances.

“GREAT "Swingin' New Year's Eve" Concert!!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

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.

“Swinging New Years Eve Concert”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

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 New Years Eve.

“Music at its BEST!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 finest choral sound imaginable! Summer finds them at a local ski center for the Picnic Pops. There is also a wide variety of pricing and is affordable for any single, couple, students, groups, etc. Be sure to hear them!

“Zelda Symphony”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

They put on an excellent show. Would totally go again! Great for the entire family. DeVos is a nice place to watch from. All the seats, except the very top seem to be very good.
