Last year, thousands gathered at Sunset Beach for the first annual Symphony at Sunset, a free, open-air concert taking place in Downtown Vancouver.

For 2019, the Symphony is back for another year of beautiful music by the beach. Last year, more than 14,000 people attended the free concert at Sunset Beach. This year, it is expected that even more people will attend, so organizers are working to ensure that the event will remain free and accessible for music-lovers of all ages.

With a concert full of songs for everyone, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will once again by playing into the sunset on Sunday, July 7, 2019.

From classical favourites to film score hits (Did you know? The VSO regularly hosts live performances of soundtracks during iconic movies like Star Wars?), you’ll be sure to recognize almost every one of the melodies during the live musical presentation.

Aside from the beautiful music and setting, Symphony at Sunset will also include an Instrument Fair Zone, where children will have an opportunity to touch and play real orchestra instruments, a Marketplace, and several prelude performances by student ensembles and faculty from the School of Music.

There will be food trucks on site for the event, and you are encouraged to bring a picnic, a blanket and to make an evening of it at Sunset Beach Park. But please, try to bring low chairs so as not to obstruct the view of other audience members.
