Your Fourth of July is already stacked – hit the parade in the morning, then onto barbecues a plenty. When the day starts to draw to a close, it’s time for the yearly A Capitol Fourth Concert at the Nation’s Capital. There are two ways to watch – either head home and get settled on the couch to watch on PBS, or take advantage of being a DC local by attending the concert. This annual spectacle is free and open to the public, and celebrates America’s independence with music and touching tributes to what makes our nation so great.
The National Symphony Orchestra, The US Army Herald Trumpets and Presidential Salute Battery, and the Army band, Pershing’s Own, is slated to perform this year. An impressive fireworks show caps off the night, and if you’re watching at home, over 20 cameras are positioned throughout DC so you won’t miss a moment of the action. Watch A Capitol Fourth Concert on your local PBS station affiliate starting at 8 p.m. or visit the website for information on how to attend.
