The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) together with The Henry Ford are proud to present the annual Salute to America concerts at Greenfield Village on June 30 through July 3. The events, held in celebration of Independence Day, will feature musical ensembles throughout the village, plus a grand stage performance by the DSO at dusk.
The ensemble performances, which guests may enjoy as they stroll the grounds, will showcase a diverse assembly of music from American history, including choral singing, ragtime, and jazz. At 8:30 p.m., the DSO will take the Village Green stage for a triumphant performance, complete with Tchaikovsky’s stirring 1812 Overture, cannon fire, and a brilliant fireworks finale (with a new launch location for improved visibility).
Along with favorite summer fare including street food, cold treats, and craft beer, guests will enjoy free carousal rides, holiday theming throughout the venue, decade vignettes, and a military fife and drum parade.
Salute to America will take place at Greenfield Village on Friday, June 30 through Monday, July 3 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
