Whistler pays homage to this great nation on July 1 with Canada Day festivities starting with an enchanted forest-themed parade along the Village Stroll at noon, a Canada Day ceremony at 2:30 p.m. in Whistler Olympic Plaza, followed with a free outdoor concert by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO).
Following the Canada Day concert and celebrations, the VSO will return to Whistler Olympic Plaza stage July 3 and 4, with the full orchestra playing under Whistler’s starry night sky, kicking off at 8 p.m.
Sunday, July 5, the Whistler Institute Orchestra will perform their inaugural concert. The Vancouver Symphony Orchestral Institute in Whistler allows young musicians an unforgettable learning experience, led by the VSO’s internationally-acclaimed music director, Maestro Bramwell Tovey.
The Canada Day VSO concert officially launches the 2015 Whistler Presents Outdoor Concert Series, setting the tone for a summer season of endless entertainment. From July 1, music aficionados can delight in free entertainment, in the iconic outdoor setting of Whistler Olympic Plaza until mid-September. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or a chair, relax on the great lawn and enjoy the show – not to mention the remarkable backdrop.
The summer concert series presents 14 outstanding outdoor concerts ranging from Blue Rodeo and Michael Franti to the Great Lake Swimmers. As part of the series, Spirit of the West will help celebrate the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s 40th anniversary on September 6.
