Grand Rapids Symphony to perform community appreciation concerts April 15-16

In appreciation for the support it has received from West Michigan throughout its 81-year history, the Grand Rapids Symphony is dedicating two performances in April to the community. Guest conductor Andrew Grams and the Grand Rapids Symphony will present the community appreciation concert, titled "Two Dons and Dvorak,' at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The concerts will be held at DeVos Performance Hall in downtown Grand Rapids.

The performances will spotlight the talents of symphony musicians Nancy Steltmann, principal cello; and Leslie Van Becker, principal viola.

As a “thank you” to the community, ticket prices have been reduced for these performances. Tickets for adults are $18, senior citizens over the age of 62 are $9 and students are $5.

In the concert’s first half, the famous stories of two historic Dons — Quixote and Giovanni — will be brought to life through the power music. The overture to Mozart’s opera “Don Giovanni” blends comedy and drama as it tells the story of the licentious Italian nobleman.

Tickets are available at the DeVos Place box office or on the day of the concert two hours prior to the performance. Tickets may also be purchased through Ticketmaster at 800-982-2787, online at, or in person at Ticketmaster outlets.
