Cancelled: Grand Rapids Symphony Concert—Sacred Dimensions

Concert Information

The Grand Rapids Symphony and Cornerstone University announced that tonight's concert scheduled for Christ Chapel at 6 p.m. is cancelled due to inclement weather and treacherous travel conditions.

In addition to concern for safe travel this evening, the decision was reached due to today's practice schedule. Musicians from both Cornerstone and the Grand Rapids Symphony were unable to safely arrive for rehearsal early this afternoon.

Regrettably, the year-end calendars of both organizations do not allow for the concert to be rescheduled this spring. Attendees who have purchased tickets for this evening's event will be contacted for a refund or a voucher to another performance by the Grand Rapids Symphony in 2018.

Cornerstone University and the Grand Rapids Symphony apologize for any inconvenience.

Beginning on April 26, 2018, the Grand Rapids Theological Seminary will host a three-part conversation on the centrality of both justice and unity in the church. Through biblically, historically and practically grounded conversations, each conference event will seek to:

  • Explore the biblical theology of justice and unity as inherent to the gospel and central to the identity and mission of the church.
  • Give voice to the ways our communities are suffering due to injustice or marginalization.
  • Discern how God is calling us to seek justice and unity in our respective contexts.
  • Facilitate restorative relationships between ministry leaders from different cultural contexts.
