From Mellow to Metal: A Packed Christian Concert Menu for Fall

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

Wilson JOsh performing 2015Josh WilsonAs the fall season sweeps in, there are plenty of musical offerings from faith-based artists in a variety of West Michigan venues.

Just compiling and listing them all in a single column is a challenge.

From Muskegon to Holland to Grand Rapids, there's music from Southern gospel to classical, aimed at audiences from youthful to senior citizen and everything in between.

Whether in large concert halls or more intimate church sanctuaries, there may be something just for you.

There's even a sneak peak at some Christmas concerts.

The chronological list is not exhaustive, and there may be concerts added or changed along the way.
