One of the best ways to savor all that summer has to offer is with LIVE music! The Grand Rapids Symphony will be busy sharing its music all over West Michigan – from the lakeshore to Meijer Gardens and several neighborhood parks in between.

Neighborhood Concert Series

We are performing in community parks all around the community! They are free to attend and you can come and go as you please. Bring a blanket or chair and enjoy music in the summer sun! Each concert will feature an ensemble from our orchestra performing a mix of classical and pops repertoire for 30 minutes. For specific times, click HERE.

Sidewalk Serenades

*Registration is now closed for Summer 2021* GRS Musicians perform intimate mini-concerts in your driveway. Available dates are July 9, 16, 17, and 24.

Picnic Pops Status

For the summer of 2021 the Grand Rapids Symphony will not be presenting Picnic Pops at Cannonsburg. Rather than concentrate most of the summer season’s musical offerings in one location, we decided to expand our presence this summer in all parts of West Michigan–reflecting our commitment to serve all areas of our community as we recover from the pandemic. In the fall, we will evaluate our 2021 summer season experience and begin planning for our 2022 summer season.
