I have a confession... I have lived in Victoria almost my whole life and have never, until this summer, been to Symphony Splash. I think I just assumed it would be too crowded and too noisy to be enjoyable. I was so wrong!
We arrived downtown in the early afternoon and set up our chairs in preparation for the evening's concert. We listened to live music on the steps of the Leg while sipping fresh squeezed lemonade, then walked the harbour to check out the buskers and artists. It was busy but, in true Victoria fashion, everyone was friendly and courteous (we are third friendliest city in the world after all).
The Symphony's performance was fantastic and Erik Lin, this year's young soloist, played beautifully. Listening to him, it was hard to believe he's only 9 years old!
I had such a fun experience, I wanted to share some of my photos of the day with you.
