San Diego, CA – Embarcadero Marina Park South
One of the best concert experiences of my life happened in the summer of 2014 on the beautiful San Diego Bay. Each year the San Diego Symphony puts on their Summer Pops: a series of wonderful outdoor concerts featuring the orchestra; sometimes backing an amazing artist! I saw Vanessa perform and it was absolutely fantastic.
First, the music was just incredible. Imagine your favorite artist, backed up not by track, or even a band; but an entire symphony! The sound is just out of this world.
Then, the setting: The San Diego Bay! It really doesn’t get much better than this. You watch the sunset bounce off the water and onto downtown San Diego’s glassy high-rise skyline, while you sip wine on your chair or at your table, on the grass, in front of a giant stage full of musicians in tuxedos in front of their instruments. Did I mention there’s wine?
The fireworks after the show are the perfect end to a special evening on the bay and just make the experience that much more memorable.
