The final summer concert is an Independence Day celebration complete with fireworks and the orchestra playing patriotic songs like America the Beautiful and 1812 Overture. The concert used to be free, but tight budgets forced the symphony to start asking for donations. It’s definitely worth the price of admission to see a live concert under the stars.
