We are excited to announce the 2015-2016 season for the Forest Hills Fine Arts
Center – our 12th annual season since opening in the Spring of 2004. This year
we are showcasing a 4-show season line-up that offers a variety of entertainment
throughout the year. We felt it was important to try something different this year
with the number of shows we offer as a package, while still providing a high-quality
show experience for our patrons.
Season tickets go on sale Monday, September 28, 2015
at 9 a.m. to the four-show
season package. You can get season tickets by calling 616-493-8966 or by stopping
in to see us at the Fine Arts Center Box Office, 600 Forest Hill Ave. SE. We are open
Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (closed 1 p.m - 2 p.m.). Season ticket sales
will close on Friday, October 30, 2015 at 5 p.m.
As always, we want to thank our season partners, sponsors,
community members, families, students, staff, volunteers, and arts patrons that
have continued to support us throughout the years. We couldn’t do it without you!
It’s going to be an incredible season and a wonderful 12th year of operations
and we are looking forward to sharing it with you!
