Grand Rapids Symphony presents Symphony with Soul

Saturday, February 27th…

Save the date for the  15th annual celebration of African-American musical expression, bridging cultures through the shared language of music. Pianist Marcus Roberts and his trio will join your Grand Rapids Symphony for this performance.

Romance, Swing, and the Blues

Pianist Marcus Roberts rose to prominence as a gifted performer — first with the Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center bands for years, then with his own trio and as a classical soloist. Roberts is perhaps best known for the development of an entirely new approach to jazz trio performance. Along the way, he’s become a mentor to many younger musicians, training many on the bandstand and from his professorship at Florida State University.

Every year, Symphony with Soul is preceded by the Celebration of Soul dinner and Dr. MaLinda P. Sapp Legacy Awards, a special event celebrating diversity and inclusion initiatives in West Michigan. For more information about the Celebration of Soul package, go here.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now at the DeVos Place® and Van Andel Arena® box offices, Ticketmaster ticket centers, online at Ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone at 1-800-982-2787.
