Grand Rapids Symphony Sets Off The Picnic Pops With A Bang! [PHOTO GALLERY]

Grand Rapids Symphony Picnic Pops at Cannonsburg Ski Area!

Picnics, perfect weather and pop.  What could be better than sitting out on the lawn at Cannonsburg Ski Area on a warm summer night with friends and family?  All of that plus a picnic, of course, for a night out with the D&W Fresh Market Picnic Pops! 

I had such a blast hosting the first Picnic Pops concert of the summer last night!  Honestly, it was my first time going and will definitely NOT be my last!  As I watched thousands of fellow and fellowette picnicers (is that even a word?) race to find his or her spot on the slope for the evening … I not only got the giggles because I’ve never seen so many huge coolers file into a venue before, but because everyone was having such a great time with one another.  There was laughter, people holding hands and even a couple of high five’s!

Grand Rapids Symphony music director, David Lockington, is a dear friend and entertaining to watch — I looove his passion on stage.  It is equally as exciting to hear and watch the symphony glide their bows in harmony over their stringed instruments, pluck and switch between first and third positions.  Extraordinary night, for sure!

Each of you who shared in this experience were a joy to spend an evening on the lawn!  Please take a moment to look through the gallery of pictures Channel 957 took to capture the moment.
