Symphony Strolls.png

Take a stroll with the Olympia Symphony! In partnership with the City of Olympia, Olympia Symphony musicians have selected OSO recordings, narrated by vocalist, actor, and former OSO guest artist Cheryse McLeod Lewis, to accompany twelve magnificent park walks. From forested trails and gardens to waterfront and scenic vistas, experience the sights and sounds of Olympia in a whole new way! Special signage with QR codes connect park visitors to an audio file of a performance by the Olympia Symphony Orchestra specially selected for that trail, vista, or environment. Explore individual Symphony Strolls below.

Symphony Strolls uses SoundCloud for the audio experience, which is available for free through the internet browser on your mobile device or through the SoundCloud app. Have the app? Just set up an account. Don't have the app? Don't worry! You don't need it to stroll away with the sounds of the symphony!

75 people joined us for a special Symphony Strolls Kickoff on July 11 at Priest Point Park Rose Garden Shelter. A trio of Olympia Symphony musicians performed live, and several attendees were the first to try out a "Symphony Stroll" by scanning the Priest Point Park Rose Garden QR code on their phones, and enjoyed the narration, which provided context for the recorded performance that followed.
