Save 50 percent off Christmas cheer with Grand Rapids Symphony's 'Before It Snows!' ticket sale

That annual holiday headache is just around the corner.

“What do I get for (fill in the blank) for Christmas?”

Don’t just buy stuff. Stuff you have to store. Stuff she’ll have to dust. Stuff he’ll probably return anyway for store credit.

Instead, give the gift of experiences, where nothing’s sold separately, no assembly is required, and it doesn’t matter whether batteries are included because you won’t need any.

Give someone you love an early Christmas present with tickets to see and hear your Grand Rapids Symphony during the holidays. Better yet, give two people you love an evening with the Grand Rapids Pops for the price of one.

Get tickets to two of the season’s most popular shows at half-off thanks to the Grand Rapids Symphony’s Before it Snows Sale!

Now through Wednesday, October 31, you can save 50 percent off on tickets for the Grand Rapids Pops’ Wolverine Worldwide Holiday Pops and Old National Bank Cirque de Noël.

Ring in the holiday cheer with heartwarming seasonal favorites including Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” highlights from “The Nutcracker,” and lots of Christmas carols at the Wolverine Worldwide Holiday Pops.

The Grand Rapids Symphony Chorus and Youth Chorus join Principal Pops Conductor Bob Bernhardt and the Grand Rapids Symphony in five performances as part of the Fox Motors Pops series.

Hear the booming bass voice of Justin Hopkins sing “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”

Experience the magic of Christmas, the wonder of Cirque artistry, and the power and beauty of live orchestral music at the Old National Bank Cirque de Noël when Cirque de la Symphonie joins the Grand Rapids Pops for its 10th anniversary holiday appearance in Grand Rapids for two performances led by Associate Conductor John Varineau in DeVos Performance Hall.
