Independence Celebration Concert in Banner Elk
Cornelia Orth, conductor
Symphony of the Mountains presents a summer evening celebration of our Independence weekend with a selection of patriotic music and family favorites. Following the National Anthem and a special American Fanfare, the concert evokes memories of Appalachian summertime including a little thunderstorm music, garden bumblebees, park gazebo music and a wonderful old hymn tune arrangement. The concert will continue with patriotic music including “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless the USA”, concluding with a tribute to our fallen soldiers and recognition of all veterans. A favorite encore will make attendees want to get on their feet and start marching!
