I attended Picnic with the Pops at Cannonsburg with Boyz II Men and the show was amazing!! It was a beautiful combination to hear Boyz II Men singing to the sounds of the GR Symphony. I'll be back next summer for more shows.

We heard a Tchaikovsky violin concerto and a Rachmaninoff symphony. Both were fantastic. The violinist for the concerto was incredible. His performance was intense, breaking many strings on his bow. I am amazed at the passion and speed with which he played. The symphony was my favorite. Many beautiful moments where the various instruments came together delightfully.

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
