FREE event presented by The Woodlands Development Company 

Celebrate America’s birthday with a bang at the annual Star-Spangled Salute July 3. This free Independence Eve spectacular, which has been a tradition at The Pavilion for 23 years, features the Houston Symphony in a selection of patriotic favorites, led by Principal Pops Conductor Michael Krajewski. Wave your flag to the tune of traditional favorites, American classics, sing-alongs, and of course, Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” complete with cannons from atop the hill. Serving as special guests at the concert are Will Makar and Lekisha Jones. Makar, a resident of The Woodlands, was a contestant on “American Idol” in Season 5 as a top 14 finalist and Jones placed fourth on Season 6 of the reality singing competition show.  Don’t miss commemorating the birth of our nation by joining the Symphony in this grandiose celebration. It’s an evening of good, old-fashioned family fun! The evening begins with free pre-concert activities for the whole family including patriotic characters, music, arts and crafts, souvenirs and more in the North Plaza starting at 6:30 p.m.
