It's a Celebration 

When: Wed., July 1 2015
Since 1989, the Cleveland Orchestra has made it a point to light up downtown with wonderful music during the week of July Fourth. Not only is the holiday already very communal and neighborly, but the Cleveland Orchestra gives us all a chance to revisit the music that has come to define us as humans (see Tchaikovsky's “1812” Overture, for example). Rock bands and Americana songwriting have become our soundtrack to summer in the U.S., but classical music — performed ’neath twilit skies in the greatest city in the world — gets us closer to the human condition. Fireworks accompany the concert too, which is just awesome. This year, the concert will take place at dusk on Mall B. Admission is free, but space fills up fast! Also note that this concert will be live streamed at ideastream.org and at clevelandorchestra.com. (Eric Sandy)
