We are pleased to introduce Sunday Strings. From 2 – 3 pm on Sunday, July 12, Sunday, August 9, and Sunday, September 13, we will be featuring a variety of live chamber music performed outdoors for visitors to enjoy. Led by Grand Rapids Symphony violinist Haijin Choi, we invite you to enjoy performances featuring combinations of violin, harp, bassoon, bass drum, viola, cello and voice. These special performances are included with membership or admission.

Please Note: Sunday Strings is being moved from the DeVos Van Andel Piazza to the Stuart and Barbara Padnos Rooftop Sculpture Garden. This presentation is not intended as a traditional sit-down concert experience, but an atmospheric, walk-by experience with limited seating, particularly for those who are unable to stand. Outside chairs will not be permitted. We hope you enjoy this afternoon of chamber music, while at the same time adhering to safe physical distancing practices.
