Ignite your patriotic spirit at the annual Star-Spangled Salute concert July 3 at 8 p.m. at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. This free Independence Eve spectacular features the Houston Symphony in a selection of patriotic favorites. Led by Principal Pops Conductor Michael Krajewski, the symphony performs a variety of traditional favorites including "American Salute," "Olympic Fanfare and Theme," "Pomp and Circumstance," "America the Beautiful," "Service Medley," and of course, Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” complete with cannons from atop the hill. Joining the symphony to perform several of Simon & Garfunkel’s greatest hits are AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle. This duo has been performing their remarkable tribute to the music of Simon & Garfunkel for more than a decade. The duo performs “Homeward Bound,” “The 59th Street Bridge Song” (“Feelin’ Groovy”), “America” and “Mrs. Robinson.”

The Star-Spangled Salute kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with festivities in the North Plaza, sponsored by Fidelity Investments, Market Street—The Woodlands, Century 21 Reality Group and Renewal by Andersen. Enjoy patriotic music performed by The Woodlands Show Chorus and interact with Betsy Ross, Uncle Sam and a living Statue of Liberty,  as well as Puffy Pine Cone. Also enjoy activities by The Pavilion Partners, The Woodlands Development Company, Radio Disney Road Crew and more. Guests can register to win Tommy Bahama’s “Best Seats in the House,” which includes dinner for four at the next arts event and a $100 gift card from Market Street—The Woodlands. Guests also receive American flags and other patriotic souvenirs at the event.

Don’t miss commemorating the birth of our nation by joining the symphony in this grandiose celebration. It's an evening of old-fashioned family fun and classic Americana!
