Earlier this year, the Victoria Symphony revealed its 2013-2014 season line up, giving music lovers a whole symphony of reasons to make reservations in luxurious hotels in Victoria. The coming season’s exciting line up includes major symphonies, choral works, musicals, and concertos drawn from the Western canon, as well as more recent works from modern composers. As performances are scheduled to take place throughout Southern Vancouver Island until the season’s closing on May 2014, visitors can make plans to attend performances ahead of time.
The total number of performances for the coming season will remain the same, including those in the Signature, Legacy, Classics, and Pops series. Audiences can look forward to perennial favorites like Mozart, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Brahms, and many others. Great concerto soloists will also grace the stage, including violinist Lara St. John, and pianists Jon Kimura Parker and Angela Cheng. There will also be thrilling choir performances, including a showcase of Brahms’s German Requiem by a couple of local choirs.
These exciting events will take place in different venues across the city, so if you’re from out of town and wish to watch certain performances with family or friends, you should make a reservation in an affordable but well-appointed hotel in Victoria. One of the most highly anticipated concerts is the annual Symphony Splash—the most recent was held on August 4 at Victoria’s Inner Harbour. If you missed this year’s performance, don’t worry, as there’s always next year.
By making reservations ahead of time, you can guarantee yourself luxurious lodgings for next year’s Symphony Splash. This event isn’t just all about the music, as there will be instrument petting zoos, a bouncy castle, a large fireworks display, and many more attractions to look forward to. You can even watch the performances from the water if you have a kayak to spare. On the other hand, after a fun day touring the city and attending concert performances, wouldn’t it be nice to return to your hotel for some relaxation and pampering?
