Pacific Symphony Fourth of July Concert at Irvine Amphitheatre


fireworks concert

Irvine, Calif.--a 4th of July  holiday extravaganza combines Symphony and Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, vocals by Jim Curry in a tribute to John Denver, and  “Rocky Mountain High: A 4th-of-July Celebration,” honoring the famed singer/song writer who died in a crash of an experimental aircraft near Monterey, California. Known for inspirational messages of care for each other and our planet, songs like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” “Take Me Home, Country Roads” and “Annie’s Song,” will bring memories for some, and enjoyable melodies to those unfamiliar with Denver's tunes. 


The orchestra also will perform a moving salute to the U.S. armed forces and a brilliant 4th-of-July fireworks finale, two traditions held at the event each year.


Part of the Summer Concerts series, the public is invited to purchase tickets, bring picnic baskets to dine on the grass lawns, and participate in a memorable event under the starry evening skies at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine. Pacific Symphony has an awesome season planned—with five hot concerts—featuring a wide array of rich repertoire under  The Symphony’s 22nd summer season's explosion of entertainment ranges from July 4th holiday celebration to bigger-than-ever classical favorites by Tchaikovsky and Beethoven and even some bluegrass.
