Join us for our annual gala!

It is time to celebrate, gather, and remember the West Michigan Symphony as we launch the 2021-2022 WMS season. The annual Gala provides vital support to the organization’s performances and youth education programs.

Join us on Saturday, November 6 at 6 pm at the new VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center in downtown Muskegon. This beautiful, large space will include a hosted bar, seated dinner, live music, dancing, and a not to miss silent auction with one of a kind items you will want to bid on!

Show off your Vax Card. In keeping with our 2021-2022 Safe Nights at the Symphony initiative, we are asking all attendees to provide a copy of their vaccination card. You can email a graphic in advance or bring the card or a smart phone image with you. WMS subscribers, just wear your green Safe Nights bracelet. Unvaccinated? No problem; please just provide a negative test result taken within the previous 72 hours. Mercy Health, Walgreens, Rite Aid and CVS pharmacies are all offering free testing by advance appointment. For more information, visit maskupmuskegon.org. We can all celebrate safely!
