Quite often, DeVos Performance Hall and DeVos Place convention center are alive with music. They certainly are when the Michigan Music Conference comes to Grand Rapids.

“Music is about collaboration and pulling people together,” says past MMC President Steven Hinz.

Without a doubt—the event brings more than 12,000 music students, teachers and supporters together each year for myriad rehearsals and performances.

For students, it’s often a once in a lifetime event. See for yourself.
