Whether paddling, picnic-ing or lawn chair-ing, visitors to Victoria’s Inner Harbour Sunday enjoyed a day of pipes, pianos and orchestras during the 30th annual Victoria Symphony Splash.
Thirty years after the first time it first brought classical music to the floating stage, the Symphony Splash is as popular as ever and drew thousands to the front lawns of the B.C. legislature and Inner Harbour, with kayakers mooring their boats for front row views.
Hosted the Victoria Symphony Society, the by-donation B.C. Day event included performances from the Naden Band, Victoria Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) and award-winning young soloist Carey Wang.
The evening ended with fireworks and the playing of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.
