Came here on a Saturday evening and had great seats (Row Q) at very reasonable prices ($34). Programme included the West coast premiere of a composition by Judd Greenstein and it was an additional bonus to be able to chat with Mr Greenstein during the interval. Usually not a fan of "modern" music, but his "Change" composition was highly unusual... More

The last concert of the year was held on Labor Day weekend at the marina. You looked out on the water as they played. They had a fireworks display at the end. Dinner and drinks were available and you could also bring your own dinner. They had small tables set up to eat. A really well organized show.

We went to the SD Symphony summer pops rock and roll show on Friday evening. The venue is amazing. The sun setting over the bay, beautiful boats passing by, and even a battleship passed us by on the water. The weather was perfect for a summer evening concert. You can get there early with your picnic dinner or buy food... More

This was a perfect evening for my wife and myself. Was so impressed with the music on the bay as we watched in awe of the instruments and the people playing them. A must do!

We went to see Burt Bacharach last Sunday - our first visit since we moved here in May. I purchased seats and pre-parking online the week before - picked two seats in the Cabaret II section on the bay side. The venue was well organized. We were directed to the parking lot; one of the attendants went to the booth... More

Picture yourself…it’s sunset…the air is warm…you’re sitting either sitting at a table or in the grandstand overlooking San Diego Bay…the cool breeze gently wafting. As you enjoy for dinner/appetizer or a beverage, you view boats in the bay, the Midway just over the top of the stage, and to the right are boats in their slips. All the while tranquil... More

We had a wonderful time under the stars listening to a professional orchestra play movie music by the bay. During the final piece fireworks were set off from a barge in the harbor. This is a great venue and I would highly recommend it to any pops music fan!

After titling this an indescribable experience... I will try to describe my experience. Arrived an hour prior to performance as the sun was setting. Sat with hubby and enjoyed our picnic as others slowly trickled in. It was one of those perfect nights with a little humidity buffeted by a light breeeze off the bay where boats were anchored for...

When we take our summer vacations in San Diego we make sure to buy tickets to the San Diego Symphony Pops concerts outside at the Embarcadero near the Convention Center. The list of performers is wonderful and each performer seems to love performing in such a magnificent setting- directly on San Diego Bay. This week the show is Divas with... More

Tickets were not that bad (you can find deals). We got great seats and enjoyed the winter pops concert. When we have extra free time again, I know me and my girlfriend will come back. We found tickets on gold star and paid very little, and were rewarded with a fantastic experience. We paid the same price we would have... More
