GR Symphony At Dogwood Wednesday A Feast For The Senses
By N3 Entertainment Team
"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."- Victor Hugo
This has been a stellar spring for musical entertainment at the Dogwood beginning with an energetic and crowd pleasing show by the Irish group Lunasa, an evening of performance precision courtesy of Livingston Taylor and a wildly entertaining appearance last Friday by the incomparable David Lindley.
And now this Wednesday we have the World Class Orchestra known as the Grand Rapids Symphony paying a visit to the Main Stage for their annual concert.
Not only does an inspiring evening of...
..classical music at its finest await attendees, there’s an extra bonus during one of their numbers when the big screen is used as an artistic backdrop featuring the creative talents of our area schoolchildren.
If you like classical music you likely already have ticket in hand. If you’re a little less likely to make this genre the number one selection on Pandora I encourage you to not only give it a try but to bring someone along who is also a novice to classical music performed by a live orchestra. It might significantly alter both your listening habits going forward and this way you have someone to talk to about it.
We all know live music is not the same as just listening on a recording device. Recorded music is mostly background sounds while we’re doing something else like driving, mowing the lawn, or pretending to work on stuff in the garage.
Live music on the other hand, is an experience. Each note comes out new and fresh as the emotions and artistry are channeled directly to the audience.
And the GR Symphony creates this atmosphere to perfection.
Attending one of their live symphonic concerts is a feast for the senses. The sound is enveloping and rich and arrives from so many different places while the interaction of the musicians with the soloists and conductors adds to the drama and heightens the experience.
And the audience as active listeners is part of that experience.
It’s Wednesday evening at 7:30pm with tickets an absolute steal at $17.50 for adults and a mere 5 bucks for 18 and under. Come out and support the arts by attending what promises to be the latest gem in what has been a rich bounty of top tier entertainment delivered for our springtime pleasure by our friends at the Dogwood.
