Nothing screams ‘summer’ like an outdoor concert, and what better way to kick off the season than with a free evening of classical music by the beach? Symphony at Sunset is officially back this year, with recognizable orchestral tunes by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO).

Taking place at Sunset Beach Park, the open-air symphony will feature a selection of classical hits from films like Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, and E.T.

The evening will be conducted by VSO’s Music Director Otto Tausk, beginning with a special orchestral arrangement of the Coast Salish Anthem, which was gifted to the VSO by the grandson of the late Chief Dan George.

Hungry for a snack? The Sunset Beach Concession will be open for food and drink purchases throughout the day and into the evening, and there will be additional food trucks present to choose from.

Note that seating is available on a first-come-first-serve basis, and bringing low chairs is strongly encouraged.

This year’s Symphony at Sunset will commence at 8 pm on Saturday, July 6th. So if you’re looking for plans following the Khatsahlano Street Fest earlier that day, you know where to head!

So there you have it, classical music lovers! Another free outdoor concert to add to your plans.
