Women will be at the heart of an upcoming concert in Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids Symphony will present “The 20/21st Century Concert: Celebrating Women” on May 3 at 8 p.m. at St. Cecilia Music Center downtown.

All the music was composed by women, except the performance of guest soloist Ava Ordman, who was the principal trombonist of the Grand Rapids Symphony for 24 seasons, from the 1970s-1990s.

Directed by John Varineau, the Grand Rapids Symphony will perform music by American composers Ruth Crawford Seeger and Joan Tower, as well as British composer Anna Clyne and other female composers.

Tickets to the concert are online.
