Music Center 24 Ransom Ave. NE, Grand Rapids scmc-online.com, (616) 459-2224


Since 1883, St. Cecilia Music Center has been supporting music and the Grand Rapids com- munity. Each year, the Center offers world-class concerts, a jazz series and a Great Artist Gala performance. The renowned violinist Sarah Chang starts the season off as she visits the Center as part of the Great Artists Gala. “The artists that we bring are such high caliber,” said Cathy Holbrook, executive director for St. Cecilia Music Center. Numerous jazz, band and orchestral performances, such as the perpetu- ally well-received Cleveland-area Baroque band Apollo’s Fire, follow. Executive Director Cathy Holbrook is particularly excited for the Center’s first jazz show of the season. Joe Lovano and Us Five features famed jazz artist Lovano, who is joined by an all-star cast of musicians – including Esperanza Spaulding, the woman who (depending on who you ask) stole the Best New Artist Grammy from Justin Bieber. “The artists that come here are in love with Royce Auditorium,” Holbrook said. “It’s fun for me to

There may be too many performances here to highlight, as every act comes highly recommended and renowned. The University Musical Society (UMS) has put together an exciting lineup of music acts, dance and theatre split up into 10 different catego- ries, though some acts transcend categories. September starts off with Ahmad Jamal, a walking jazz piano legend, and follows with 9-time Grammy winners, the Emerson String Quartet. The modern dance Mozart, the Mark Morris Dance Group, closes the month. October is met with The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer with John Malkovich and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra, which Marketing Manager Stephanie Normann is most looking forward to. “It combines theatre and baroque,” she said. The piece tells the story of a dead serial killer who presents his autobiography onstage. “We’re doing more contemporary programming,” said Normann, who highlights the San Francisco Symphony as one of the contemporary acts during the season. And that’s just the start, folks. Other highlights of the year include the London Philharmonic, Yuja Wang, Snow White and Einstein on the Beach, among many others.
