This past weekend, the provincial government in BC announced a new grant that’ll let families enjoy symphony concerts without spending a fortune.

Families will be treated to an array of free or low-cost concerts across Metro Vancouver over the course of three years. This is all thanks to a $1-million grant to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO).


“Tonight’s free concert at Sunset Beach is just one example of how this funding will help make amazing entertainment more accessible and affordable for people in their communities,” said Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture.

This year marks VSO’s 100th anniversary. To commemorate this special anniversary, the B.C. government provided a $1-million grant to VSO’s Tomorrow Starts Today Fund to support two programs for three years. $450,000 has been allocated to Day of Music and $550,000 to support its Making Music Accessible and Affordable initiative.

In total, this grant will help an estimated 50,000 people enjoy free symphony concerts this year alone.
