You may have heard of Victoria Symphony’s “Pops” series, but those performances are merely a sliver of the full scope. Here are five reasons that experiencing the musical majesty of the Victoria Symphony should be at the top of your spring to-do list:

1 – Treat Yourself

When was the last time you had the opportunity truly enjoy a night out? Treat yourself this spring with a wonderful, elegant night in downtown Victoria at the historic Royal Theatre or at UVic’s vibrant Faquahar Auditorium.

Don’t worry about a dress code – the symphony welcomes everyone – just sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in the timeless, breathtaking sounds of a classical concert.

2 – Have a Musical Experience Unlike Anything Else in Victoria

A night at the symphony isn’t your average musical experience. Try as you may, there’s just no replicating the feeling of a brilliant live classical performance. Forget your earphones and airpods, the symphony is a delight that simply has to be witnessed in person.

Watching and listening as dozens of talented musicians join forces is as amazing as it is incomparable.

3 – Try Something New

Ever feel stuck in the same, repetitive rut? This is the perfect brand-new experience to jolt you out of it. Whether you’re bringing your partner, friends, or just taking a night for yourself, the symphony provides a wonderful escape from the stresses of everyday life.

4 – Be Inspired

These musicians have been working in their craft for their entire lives. Even if you’re not planning on becoming a violin virtuoso yourself, watching so much hard work and dedication come to fruition is an unparalleled experience.

Feeling the warm crescendos of sound wash over you, while knowing how many people worked together to make the concert possible truly replenishes the soul.

5 – Enjoy Great Value While Supporting the Arts

Just because you want to spend a classy night out doesn’t mean you should have to pay through the nose for one; that’s why the Victoria Symphony offers a very affordable range of ticket prices.

From subscription packages to single tickets, your perfect seats are just waiting for you to purchase them. Not to mention, you’ll be supporting the local arts community, helping the symphony continue to offer extensive community outreach and education programs.
