This year’s 33rd anniversary performance of Symphony in the Park will transport listeners to other worlds, whether it’s the gritty streets of New York (Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story), the story of an alien visitor (Adventures on Earth (Theme from E.T.) by John Williams) or one of the greatest love stories of all time (Tchaikovsky’s Romeo & Juliet – Fantasy Overture).

As we end our season on Saturday at Symphony in the Park at Deer Lake, we will be honouring Maestro Tovey with a special performance of “Nimrod” from Elgar’s Enigma Variations, one of his favourite pieces. We invite you to join us in the park for this free concert as we pay tribute to Bramwell.

Come early for free family activities, bring a blanket or chair and a picnic and settle in for a wonderful evening with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Just a reminder that parking in the vicinity is limited, so alternate transportation is recommended.
