On Wednesday, July 4 at 9:00 p.m., the Toledo Symphony Orchestra will perform as part of ProMedica’s Downtown Summer Concert Series at Promenade Park. The concert will feature many patriotic favorites led by new Music Director Alain Trudel, such as America the Beautiful, 1812 Overture, Stars and Stripes Forever, and more. Immediately following the performance, the orchestra’s grand finale will coincide with a fireworks presentation over the Maumee River.
“This will be the first time that the full Toledo Symphony performs as part of the Downtown fireworks presentation.” said Zak Vassar, President & CEO of the Toledo Symphony. “It’ll be a huge moment for us to be in this spotlight. The concert will be simulcast on the radio, so every Toledoan will be able to listen along – whether they’re at Promenade Park, attending one of the many rooftop parties, or floating on a boat in the Maumee. As the Toledo Symphony approaches its 75th birthday, we are proud to be Toledo’s orchestra and provide the soundtrack to such an important celebration.”
