Reviewed July 11, 2014

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 gone repeatedly.

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 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.

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 New Years Eve.
