GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Musicians and artists are coming together on stage at St. Cecilia Music Center to help teach others to listen to art.

“Listen to Art” is a program on Saturday, March 21 at 11 a.m. that will entertain and teach children and adults the relationship between art and music. The family concert will be presented by the St. Cecilia Music Center School of Music. All audience members will receive a journal and colored pencils to create their own art.

The program will be led by Debbie Bell, Community Visual Artist and College Art Instructor at Montcalm Community College.

She will then guide the audience to listen to the music and create their own art. The program is appropriate for all ages, including students with special needs.

“Listen to Art” is open to the public. Tickets are $10 for adults. Kids 13 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased online, at the box office at 24 Ransom Ave. NE or by calling St. Cecilia Music Center at (616) 459-2224.
