VANCOUVER (CityNews) – Saturday, May 15 is the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s Day of Music, where you can enjoy free performances all day from musicians across B.C.

According to the event website, “Day of Music was launched by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in 2019 as part of its centennial celebrations. More than 100 ensembles and musicians came together with over 14,000 audience members for a free celebration of music that day.”

Of course, when the pandemic hit, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra had to pivot many of its events online, and thus, the live stream version of Day of Music was born, and became available to viewers around the globe.
