Join us for the 25th anniversary of our quintessential Fourth of July celebration with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
Red, white and blue-festooned buildings; classic summer tastes; fifes and drums and fireflies are the backdrop for the most robust expression of the Fourth of July — connecting with family, friends and neighbors to honor the great American experiment. Community goodwill fills Greenfield Village as picnic blankets and chairs are assembled for the joint concert by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band, the premier touring musical representatives of the United States Army. The finale is the DSO’s stirring rendition of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, played in harmony with authentic cannon fire under a canopy of fireworks.
An exuberant collection of songs, food and fanfare that is quintessentially American. Join us for this celebratory evening of high notes, from the first glance at Greenfield Village to the last sparkle in the sky. Thanks to our partners at Ford Motor Company and Bank of America for helping make Salute to America possible.
Before the show begins, enjoy a performance from Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit in the Greenfield Village plaza from 5:45-6:45 pm, compliments of the Ford Motor Company Fund.
