The Blossom Festival Band, conducted by Loras John Schissel, performs a traditional 4th of July concert featuring a mix of patriotic Sousa marches plus a salute to the U.S. Armed Forces. Robert Conrad, president and co-founder of classical music station WCLV/104.9, will serve as narrator for Harold L. Walters’s Duty, Honor, Country. The text is adapted from an address by General of the Army Douglas MacArthur given at the U.S. Military Academy on May 12, 1962. The program concludes with Tchaikovsky’s “1812” Overture.
