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

JaJa Ling is a top-notch conductor. It is one of the best symphonies that I have ever attended. The 2015 season at the Copley symphony hall has just concluded. They are beginning their Summer Pops season by San Diego bay. This is an outside venue and is absolutely a fun and rewarding evening. To find the schedule go to their... More

The Symphony Hall has beautiful architecture and the acoustics are fantastic to listen to an opera singer like Nathan with a great strong voice. Nathan was magnificent ! His singing... More

I've been to many concerts and events in San Diego and this location is my favorite. The summer pops is a great way to see the San Diego Symphony play in a completely unique setting with unusual artists. Wether it's movie themes, motown classics, or traditional orchestral (albeit well known & popular) concerts, it's always fantastic. You can bring in... More

Did not regret getting front-row tickets to Summer Pops. The weather was fantastic and the atmosphere was really free and casual. Nothing like strings and fresh air to improve a tired evening. If you can, try to see a movie-soundtrack live - getting to look at how it's done via the conductor's instruction screen/prompts is totally worth it.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!! I booked this without telling my husband or kids. They have been to a couple of Cirque shows so I felt semi-confident but was not prepared by how "cool" my teens thought the show was. First, the backdrop on the water is spectacular. You can sit on the lawn but I booked some table seats - very close for... More

From the end of June to the end of August, you can combine a casual dinner with good entertainment and delightful San Diego weather outdoors along the water. While most who attend are probably locals, this is a great alternative to another restaurant meal and an aimless evening for travelers. Pops deserves its own TripAdvisor attraction entry. No indoor concert... More

Our party of four got tickets on the grass for the ABBA concert - a Swedish band replicating ABBA. And they did a passable job - some songs like the original, others less so. Maybe it was the "yet" lag. Nevertheless, I'd do it again because it was a well paced, entertaining 2 hour+ show. The setting is impeccable. Right... More
