Tickets on sale for Birch Aquarium’s spring/summer Green Flash Concert Series

Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography will present its sixth annual Green Flash Concert Series on Wednesday evenings beginning May 18 at 2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla. These unique monthly concerts (co-hosted by 102.1 FM KPRI) are held from 6-9 p.m. for ages 21 and older. Proceeds support aquarium exhibits and educational programs. General admission is $25 with RSVP at (858) 534-4109 or $30 at the door. A season pass is $120.


The concerts combine live music with panoramic ocean views on the aquarium’s outdoor tide-pool plaza. Happy-hour appetizers, craft beers and wines are available for purchase. Guests are invited to keep an eye out for a real “green flash,” a rare optical phenomenon caused by refraction of light as the sun sets on the horizon.

Concerts are standing-room only. Admission includes the concert, entrance to aquarium exhibits and parking.
