Program Notes

Perhaps one of the more famous historical monuments located in Grand Ledge, Michigan, is its familiar formations of sedimentary rock, the Ledges. This ancient structure, the seventh-largest of its kind in the state, overlooks roughly a mile of the banks of the Grand River at a height of 60 feet. Whether taking a stroll through Fitzgerald Park, or learning how to rock-climb on its more friendly footholds in Oak Park, the Ledges provides a unique and distinctive symbol of what the town of Grand Ledge has to offer.

Splendid Ridges creates a brief but powerful and majestic statement on viewing this historical monument for the very first time.
