Collaborative Community Events

This summer, the Symphony is excited to announce a gradual return to in-person programming! We will continue to focus on deepening community outreach and providing more opportunities for engagement with a wider variety of audiences, as part of our mission “to be a professional orchestra serving northern Michigan, creating educational opportunities and community enrichment through excellence in symphonic and other musical experiences”. This page will be frequently updated as new events are added.
