This year, concert-goers will be humming along to recognizable music from hit films like Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, E.T. and more, plus a selection of classical favourites!

Conducted by the VSO's Music Director Otto Tausk, this sunset performance by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will begin with an orchestral arrangement of the Coast Salish Anthem, gifted to the VSO by the grandson of the late Chief Dan George.
