GRCC — Over 100 musicians will perform in the 75th annual Musical Moods concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11.
For 75 years, ensembles and soloists from both music and non-music majors at Grand Rapids Community College have come together for a performance held at a local high school. East Grand Rapids High School Performing Arts Center, 2111 Lake Drive SE, will host this year.
Kevin Dobreff, GRCC Music Department head and program director, said Musical Moods has taken place in almost every high school in the Kent Intermediate School District.
“It’s a great event,” he said. “It showcases so many fine ensembles and vocal groups. It’s been a great thing for me to be part of over these last 30 years, and I can’t wait for this one.”
This event was created in 1947 by the music department founder, Albert P. Smith, to serve as a celebration of hard work and talent.
Admission is $15 for adults, while high school and GRCC students, with a current and valid student ID at the door, and children 12 and under are free.
This year’s concert, Dobreff said, will feature a variety of musical styles, everything from the classical and Renaissance periods to jazz and contemporary. “There will be something for everybody.”
