GRS which is preparing for Grand Rapid Symphony Symphonic Boom series, was officially formed in 1930 after the local community of West Michigan and Grand Rapids felt the need for an orchestra to strengthen the region and city. Towards the end of its seventy-fifth Anniversary Season, the GRS debuted in NYC’s famous Carnegie Hall in May 2005. Since then, the Symphony has performed various concerts all over Michigan and has been broadcasted by WBLV. In 2000, it toured across the Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan. During this time the orchestra presented at many well0knwon venues including Northern Michigan University, Lake Superior State University, Interlochen Center of the Arts, Ferris State University and the Michigan Technological University, where interestingly the orchestra served as the main entertainment for the big opening or Rozsa Center of Performing Arts. Then in 2003, it performed in the Orchestra Hall in Detroit as part of the extensive inaugural activities for the newly modeled Max M. Fisher Music Center.
The Symphony collaborates every year with the community to create a cultural bridge by performing a concert called Symphony with Soul that features local and national African-American guest artists. The major part of the proceeds from this presentation is used to support the orchestra’s Gifted, Youth & Black Scholarship Funds, which were formed in 2005 from a grant taken from W.K. Kellogg Foundation. This fund covers the instrument training among the younger African-American students of the Grand Rapids region.
