“We’re thrilled to have the chance to play for our home town audience on this most special of holidays,” says the Symphony’s Maestro Peter Rubardt. “We’ll be playing a lot of our favorite songs: patriotic favorites, popular movie themes, big band jazz, and more.  In the gorgeous setting of the Community Maritime Park Amphitheater, this will be the perfect way to celebrate America”.

This will be the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra’s first performance in Pensacola for the 4th of July! Everyone is encouraged to bring your blankets, lawn chairs, and coolers to the Amphitheater at Community Maritime Park and enjoy a full evening of the Symphony and Sertoma’s 4th of July Fireworks.
