2021 - 2022 Season

Although the past year and a half has been full of challenges, our mission remains the same. If anything, we’ve learned even more about the incredible power of music to unite a community through unprecedented times.

We’re excited to announce the Battle Creek Symphony is returning for live, in-person performances this season, starting with our first concert on October 2nd. New Beginnings, featuring Kevin Cole on piano, is an All-American concert that truly celebrates coming together after a year apart.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome you back for one of Maestra Harrigan’s most ambitious seasons yet offering a variety of classic, contemporary, and one-of-a-kind commissioned music.
