The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra to perform free, outdoor concert at Sunset Beach on July 14

by Janet Smith on June 21st, 2018


The last time the VSO performed a free open-air concert in Vancouver was in Stanley Park in 2011.


The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will kick off its 100th anniversary season with a free, outdoor concert at Sunset Beach Park on July 14.

The Vancouver board of parks and recreation and the VSO hope to make the all-ages Symphony at Sunset an annual event.

There will be food trucks on site, and members of the public are invited to bring a picnic, a blanket, and, if necessary, low chairs so as not to obstruct the view of other audience members.

The board and the VSO said in the joint announcement today that it will be alcohol and smoke-free.

Student ensembles from the VSO School of Music will give a preconcert starting at 7:15 p.m.

The sunset concert performed by the VSO runs from 8:30 to 10 p.m., with the program spanning everything from music by Leonard Bernstein to excerpts from Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and John Williams’s Star Wars.

The event will mark the first free outdoor VSO concert in Vancouver since 2011, when the ensemble played in Stanley Park for th city's 125th anniversary. The symphony will also play an open-air concert in Whistler over Canada Day weekend and at Burnaby’s Deer Lake Park on July 8.
