We spent the whole day waiting for the fireworks but not impressed at all. Super short! Wished they had more. We did enjoy the music. Not fair for families with kids who spend the whole day waiting for more of the fireworks. All the other...More

Wonderful evening spent at the Inner Harbour in Victoria listening to the Victoria Symphony playing on a barge. The background of the Victoria Legislature Buildings and the show ending with a spectacular show of fireworks. We look forward to the event every year.

Every year,just before Christmas,we have the pleasure to welcome the Victoria Symphony Orchestra in Qualicum Beach. In addition,the Victoria Choral Society and the renown soprano Eleanor McCain added to an evening to remember. Tickets were $35 each and well worth it

Victoria's symphony is very good for the size of Victoria and sometimes the performances are outstanding! It is well worth checking the schedule to see what's on, they have many performances all year and I'd highly recommend!

Victoria Symphony is better than most medium sized city symphonies. Watch for performances by the Youth Symphony!! They are one of the best anywhere.
