Concert Description

On sale through the Henry Ford Box Office. Red, white, and blue-festooned buildings, classic summer fare, fifes, drums, and fireflies are the backdrop for the region’s most robust expression of the Fourth of July — a quintessentially American concert punctuated by an extraordinary fireworks display.

Community goodwill fills Greenfield Village as picnic blankets and chairs are assembled for a joint concert by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Jazz Ambassadors of The United States Army Field Band. An exuberant collection of songs, food, and fanfare connects families, friends, and neighbors to honor the great American experiment.

The finale is the DSO’s stirring rendition of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, played in harmony with authentic cannon fire and followed by a patriotic medley under a canopy of fireworks. Join us for this celebratory evening of high notes, from the first glance at Greenfield Village to the last sparkle in the sky.
