Houston Symphony Celebrates Fourth of July with Free Musical Extravaganza
The Houston Symphony will celebrate Independence Day at Miller Outdoor Theatre on July 4 with a free musical extravaganza featuring patriotic tunes and a magnificent firework display.
A longstanding Houston tradition, this year's Star-Spangled Salute features vocalist Ryan Shaw and a selection of patriotic favorites, American Classics, sing-alongs, and Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" led by Principal POPS Conductor Steven Reineke. The evening's festivities conclude with a magnificent firework display provided by the City of Houston through the Miller Theatre Advisory Board.
"Every year, our musicians look forward to this grand celebration where families and friends come together to celebrate the greatness of our country and the beautiful city in which we live," said Principal POPS Conductor Steven Reineke. "I encourage all Houstonians to join us in this long-standing family tradition and experience the Houston Symphony in a whole new way."
