Victoria Symphony Splash is an annual Victoria Symphony event that takes place on a floating stage moored in Victoria's Inner Harbour. It includes musical entertainment, food, souvenirs & the evening's highlight: a live performance by the Victoria Symphony. Splash is now one of the largest annual symphony events in North America, attracting up to 40,000 Victoria residents & visitors from all over the world, some who visit Victoria just to see Splash! Over 400 volunteers help to bring the event to the community.
The music performed is a mix of classical and popular selections & one (or two) talented young soloists are featured each year. The concert concludes with a performance of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, complete with bells, cannons, & fireworks.
