SSN 2018 Festival Info
Grand Rapids Women's Chorus (GRWC) and Windsong: Cleveland's Feminist Chorus will co-host the 12th Sister Singers Network International Women's Choral Festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The festival will be held at the AMWAY GRAND PLAZA, JUNE 27-JULY 1, 2018. This downtown Grand Rapids world-class performance and conference venue will accommodate up to 800 singers.
College dorm/apartment and hotel options will be available for attendees. Both options will be first come first served. The hotel option is in the same venue as performances and workshops (so no extra travel needed).
- Hotel rooms available for up to 4 people per room at the Amway Grand Plaza for a cost of $149.00 per night plus taxes (total - not per person). The rooms will have 2 queen beds.
- Aquinas College is just under 3 miles from the performance and workshop venue. Cost there will likely be right around $55.00 per night for an apartment style room with shared bathroom with spaces available for approximately 240 guests. There is also an even less expensive dorm room option ($36.00 per night) with space for 300 more guests, but these spaces are traditional dorms with no air conditioning and with extra cost for linens.
