PRESS RELEASE — Grand Rapids is a great place to live and work, and the Grand Rapids Symphony is proud to be a part of the wonderful community of West Michigan.
This past summer at Cannonsburg Ski Area, whether they were dancing to the music of Motown, singing along with songs of The Beatles or basking in the glow of fireworks following Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, nearly 17,000 members of our community joined the Grand Rapids Symphony in July and
August for the D&W Fresh Market Picnic Pops.
