Sunsets and Serenades:  Symphony on the Edge at Arbor Crest

When it comes to summertime, everything is better outdoors—even the Spokane Symphony. The orchestra will provide sublime sunset experiences at Arbor Crest Wine Cellars with two “Soiree on the Edge” concerts on consecutive Wednesdays –August 13 and 20. Both performances start at 7pm, when Arbor Crest’s lawn transforms into Spokane’s most breathtaking outside concert venue. The Symphony will serenade listeners as they picnic on the grass on the peak of the ridge above Spokane Valley, with the sun making its theatrical exit over the city of Spokane, right on cue.

Just a 20-minute drive from downtown, Arbor Crest is a world away, where concert-goers are welcome to bring blankets or lawn chairs to soak in the music while sipping Arbor Crest wines and partaking from their picnic baskets. There are also a limited number of table seats under the tent where the orchestra plays. No outside alcohol allowed. Arbor Crest’s award-winning wines will be available for purchase. This is a 21 and over event presented in partnership with Arbor Crest Wine Cellars.  For Directions to Arbor Crest, go to

Tickets are $40 for table seating or $20 for general admission. Call the Box Office at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox at 509-624-1200. Tickets are also available at Arbor Crest Tasting Rooms at the winery and in River Park Square. Or go online at
