St. Cecilia Music Center
Named after the patron saint of music, St. Cecilia Music Center is considered to be the “mother of the arts” in Grand Rapids. After all, it’s not just a fixture; it’s the establishment that started it all. Area women formed the center in 1883, performing in each other's homes until a steadily growing audience forced them to find bigger and bigger temporary residences. By 1894, they had a permanent headquarters in their very own building. The 800-seat auditorium, twinkling chandeliers, and reception room—anchored by arched windows—quickly attracted world-renowned musicians to the city to play for larger audiences. Today, the center continues to bring high-quality programs to its confines and even houses a School of Music, where young minds can grow to be great musicians.
