Live Music

Sound Symposium Harbour Symphony

The Harbour Symphony is original music written for the horns of the ships in the St. John’s harbour. This signature fanfare of the Sound Symposium transforms the ships in the harbour into an orchestra on water. Each Harbour Symphony begins with a radio countdown transmitted to the bridge of the ships by the Coast Guard where players stand at the helms of tugboats, trawlers, and ocean-going freighters. At the signal, a giant, floating horn section reverberates off the Southside Hills and through the streets of old St. John’s, echoing the soul of this 500-year-old seaport. Harbour Symphonies happen every day of Sound Symposium at 12:30 p.m. If you’re anywhere near downtown St. John’s, you’ll hear the ships’ music.

5:30 p.m.
