 Victoria Symphony Cancels Symphony Splash 2020

Victoria, BC – The 31st annual Victoria Symphony Splash will be postponed to the summer of 2021, the Victoria Symphony announced today.

On Saturday, April 19, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said there will be no large public gatherings this summer due to the fight against COVID-19. That includes the popular Victoria Symphony Splash.

“Obviously this is disappointing, but completely understandable. We are supportive of the outstanding guidance Dr. Henry has be providing the province,” said CEO Kathryn Laurin. “We’d like to thank all of our sponsors, Band of Heroes, local businesses, musicians, volunteers and of course the thousands of people who continually support this iconic summer event. We look forward to hosting a wonderful summer event next year.”

Along with Victoria Symphony Splash, the Symphony has cancelled its entire summer season including Beer & Beethoven and performing at Butchart Gardens.

The 31st Victoria Symphony Splash will be August 1, 2021.
