The Vintage Parlor Orchestra is a versatile and talented Grand Rapids based ensemble taking the masterpieces of the last few centuries out of the concert hall. Performing this music in non-traditional spaces and environments, VPO concerts provide the community with new ways of experiencing classical music through audience engagement and participation.
We believe that classical music is for everywhere. In practice, VPO seeks to genuinely reflect the social listening habits of the concert going public by marketing and performing as any other genre - squeezing chamber and orchestral repertoire into the breweries, nightclubs, movie theaters, art galleries, and living rooms of West Michigan. Providing featured roles and orchestral opportunities to local classical musicians, VPO endeavors to revitalize the way an orchestra connects with the local music scene.
