The 39th season of Grand Valley State University's Arts at Noon concert series continues Wednesday, January 25, when members of the Grand Rapids Symphony return to the Allendale Campus.

"As the premiere arts organization in West Michigan, the Grand Rapids Symphony provides amazing cultural and educational benefits to the region," said Henry Duitman, Arts at Noon coordinator and GVSU Symphony Orchestra director. "Every year, the performance by the Grand Rapids Symphony during the Arts at Noon series brings the warmth of exquisitely-played string and woodwind instruments to the audience in the Cook-DeWitt Center. This is always the most eagerly-anticipated performance of the semester."

During this free concert, the symphony will perform Wolfgang Amadeaus Mozart's "Overture to II re pastore," Joseph Martin Kraus' "Symphony in C minor," and Antonio Rosetti's "Symphony in G minor."

The Grand Rapids Symphony performance is one of eight concerts that will take place through April. The full schedule includes:

  • February 1 - Almava Trio
  • February 22 - Hildegard Singers
  • March 15 - loadbang
  • March 22 - Jim Cooper Quartet
  • March 29 - A Menagerie of Keyboards with Gregory Crowell
  • April 5 - Percussion Group 1501

All of the Arts at Noon concerts take place in the Cook-DeWitt Center on the Allendale Campus, begin at noon, and last approximately one hour. Every concert is free and open to the public.
