Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids is a very family oriented destination, boasting a 158 acre botanical garden, along with an art museum, outdoor sculpture park and an outdoor concert venue. It’s probably the most laid back and comfortable place to see an outdoor concert you will find in west Michigan. And if you are heading to a show there, plan ahead to have time to experience everything they have to offer there, you could literally spend a day at Meijer Gardens.
Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park announced on Friday additional dates and information for the Fifth Third Bank Summer Concerts, Tuesday Evening Music Club and the Jim & Marie Preston Sunday Strings. These shows will include a solo Grand Rapids Symphony performance conducted by Bob Bernhardt, Principal Pops Conductor, the Grand Rapids Symphony with Pink Martini and other special shows to be announced.
Chamber Music performances happen throughout the park with the Jim and Marie Preston Sunday Strings, which features combinations of violin, harp, marimba, mandolin, cello and others. Musicians feature members of the Grand Rapids Symphony and other West Michigan musicians. The performances will happen on June 6, June 27, July 18, August 29 and September 12. The performance happening on July 18 will also provide an audience participation offering in the Lena Meijer Children's Garden.
“We look forward to the return of music at Meijer Gardens and are pleased to be able to continue our support of Meijer Gardens and the popular summer concert series, which now includes the Grand Rapids Symphony,” Fifth Third Bank Regional President Tom Welch said. “We are delighted that two Grand Rapids treasured cultural organizations are teaming up to further the arts in our community.
