Performing new music is an important part of the mission of any
orchestra – even when the music is new because it’s old.
Rapids Symphony joins Opera Grand Rapids this weekend to give the Midwest
premiere of an opera that’s more than 240 year old.
Willibald Gluck’s “Orphée et
Eurydice,” a ground-breaking work that would influence opera composers for the
next 100 years, opens tonight in the DeVos Center for Arts and Worship at Grand
Rapids Christian High School.
