The Grand Rapids Public Museum will host a series of audio and visual concerts.
The 2022 Concerts Under the Stars will have its first performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, at the museum’s Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium at 272 Pearl St. NW in Grand Rapids.
“We’re excited for the return of Concerts Under the Stars at the Chaffee planetarium,” said Jack Daleske, the GRPM’s planetarium manager. “This year will feature a broad range of musical talent from local musicians in combination with local digital artists for an incredible full-sensory experience unique only to our location.”
Normal Mode, a Grand Rapids trio writing lo-fi space travel music, includes pianist Dutcher Snedeker, upright/electric bassist Ian Thompson and drummer Nathan Coles. The group’s music is based on jazz, rock and funk.
The band will be accompanied by local video artist Nate Eizenga, who will weave his digital art into the music performance. Normal Mode will play two sets with an intermission between.
In addition to the performances, the museum will have the “Bats: Masters of the Night” and the “Streets of Old Grand Rapids” exhibits. Refreshments, beers and other beverages will be available for purchase.
The series will continue on Feb. 10 with a mix of surf and garage rock sets by Hollywood Makeouts and conclude on March 10 and 11 with a blend of alternative rock by Lazy Genius.
