A delightful doubleheader on tap
Got a bit of the midwinter blues?
Tired of getting your entertainment fix fromTV?
Longing to latch onto some live music?
Well lucky you because this week there are a pair of outstanding options within a short saunter to Fremont.
First off the GR Symphony comes to town for their annual visit Thursday at 7:30. Compositions from Copeland, Bach, Tchaikovsky and Mozart are among the classical tunes emanating from the Main Stage.
And here’s the thing for all of you out there who love a bargain. Next weekend a similar seat at DeVos for the GRS show would cost you $66. Then there’s gas to get down there, parking, likely a meal at one of the downtown eateries and a drive home late at night.
At the D-wood?
And even better? Should you want the student in your life to drink in a little culture?
A mere fin gets them in.
Unprecedented bargain to be sure.
Then on Saturday (also 7:30pm) another annual event comes to the club-like atmosphere of the Black Box when The Luthiers Concert returns.
This brainchild of Ms. Faune Benson Schuitema (one of our favorite people on the planet) has been introducing new Luthiers and musicians as well as bringing back familiar favorites to Dogwood audiences for over a decade. It is a combination exhibit/concert that has drawn huge crowds and rave reviews while giving folks the opportunity to meet these talented regional artists who create these magnificent instruments.
And though the emcee (yours truly) has a tendency to stumble through the introductions, the music that follows is well worth the wait.
So below you will find the skinny on both and if you’ve not been to the Dogwood since the renovation aimed at providing an amazingly easy access these offerings are a golden opportunity to do so.
See you there.
