The concert will be in downtown Muskegon’s Frauenthal Theater. This program will include Dvorák’s “Slavonic Rhapsody No. 2,” John Williams’ music from the movies “Star Wars” and “Superman,” Ron Nelson’s “Jubilee,” and an arrangement of “A Mighty Fortress” by Vaclav Nelhybel.

In addition, winners of study grants to fund further music education opportunities for West Michigan Youth Symphony members will be announced. Members of the youth symphony have earned a spot in the ensemble through an audition process and they participate in weekly rehearsals at Muskegon Community College. The members represent 17 middle and high schools from Hart and Montague to the north, Fremont and Casnovia to the east, Zeeland to the south, and points in-between, with additional student members from Grand Valley State University and Muskegon Community College.

“We are fortunate to have such a talented group of young musicians for our annual spring concert,” said Daniel Meyers, the youth symphony’s music director and conductor. “We are looking forward to sharing this exceptional concert experience with our audience members.”

Tickets for the concert are available in person at the West Michigan Symphony office, 425 W. Western Ave., Suite 409, Muskegon; or at the door on the day of the concert beginning at 2:15 p.m. Adult tickets are $10, senior citizens (age 65 and older) are $5, and students are free (18 and younger or with a college ID).
