Top 5 Reasons for Taking in a Symphony of the Sea

A band plays onstage inside Ripley's Aquarium of Canada during a Symphony of the Sea concert.

If the thought of hearing classical music in an underwater-like setting floats your boat, be shore to swim by Ripley’s Aquarium on December 7, from 8-11 p.m.

  1. Experience music in whole new environment. Instead of the usual concert hall, at Ripley’s you’ll be surrounded by glass aquariums and tunnels and the other-worldly lighting that goes with them.
  2. Experience sea animals in a whole new way. Being able to hang out and observe aquatic life at a relaxed pace is a special treat. You may even notice the fish responding to the serene music, courtesy of the Toronto Chamber Players. Waltzing jellyfish anyone?
  3. Enjoy some adult beverages in a family-friendly environment. Just because it’s kid-friendly, doesn’t mean the grown-ups can’t enjoy themselves! Cash bars set up in several spots throughout the aquarium mean you can enjoy a beer while communing with the stingrays.
  4. No line-ups. Although the musical evenings at the aquarium are super popular and sell-out most of the time, you won’t need to stand in line to get in. Your spot is guaranteed if you buy your tickets in advance.
  5. Tickets cost the same! Even though you’re getting the added bonus of musical entertainment, the ticket prices are no higher than usual. Adult: $30 + HST; Youth: $19.25 + HST; Child: $7 + HST; Senior: $19.25 + HST.
