| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Millennium Park will celebrate the 4th of July in a big, bold way this summer with its first-ever Independence Day free concert on July 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the Pritzker Pavilion.
The concert, part of the Grant Park Music Festival, will feature the Grant Park Orchestra, conducted by maestro Christopher Bell, and special guest Chicago tap dance master Lane Alexander.

Highlights of the afternoon concert program include: "The Star Spangled Banner," Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man," Ron Nelson's "Savannah River Holiday," excerpts from Morton Gould's Concerto for Tap Dancer and Orchestra, Tchaikovsky's "Overture 1812" and John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever."
