Burnaby Symphony in the Park with the VSO
- When: Saturday, July 16 2022 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm
- Where: Deer Lake Park Festival Lawn (6450 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby)
- Admission: Free
This is the 33rd anniversary performance of Symphony in the Park! The event will start at 6:00pm with a performance by the VSO School of Music’s Azalea Chinese Music Ensemble. At 7:00pm, the VSO and conductor Andrew Crust 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 (Main Theme from E.T. by John Williams) or one of the greatest love stories of all time (Tchaikovsky’s Romeo & Juliet “Fantasy Overture”).
Event grounds will be open all day for picnic-goers to set up early, as space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. Enjoy the family-friendly Kids’ Creativity Zone, including musical activities for the youngest audience members. Several food trucks will be parked throughout the grounds as well. Rehearsals by the evening’s performers will occur in the afternoon for park-goers to enjoy music throughout the day.
A friendly reminder to bring low chairs to not obstruct the view of other audience members. The VSO encourages the use of reusable water bottles. Outside food and drink are welcome at both venues.
Note: Parking in the vicinity is limited, so alternate transportation is recommended.
