Newport Symphony Orchestra’s 2017 July 4th Concert
Broadcast Saturday at 4:00 on KNPT & KYTE
The Newport Symphony at the Ocean’s traditional Independence Day celebration continues this year on the air. You are invited to celebrate July 4th with the NSO, wherever you may be, via a very special encore broadcast of the Orchestra’s 2017 free community concert on Saturday, July 4 at 4:00pm on KNPT AM 1310 and KYTE FM 102.7. From 7:00pm-10:00pm the concert, with added photo montage of previous July 4th concerts, will be available for streaming at NewportSymphony.org.
Music Director and Conductor Adam Flatt and the NSO present a rousing concert including the popular annual salutes to the Armed Forces and members of the Newport fleet. The program makes a nod to great American musical favorites including John Williams’s “The Olympic Spirit”, a medley of Henry Mancini’s marches, Richard Rodgers’s selections from “Carousel” and “Victory at Sea,” and much more.
So, grab a barbecue and your radio this Saturday beginning at 4:00pm for a good old fashioned July 4th concert with the Newport Symphony Orchestra on KNPT AM 1310 and KYTE FM 102.7, or tune into the stream online beginning at 7:00 pm at www.newportsymphony.org.
A live performance will not take place this year in response to COVID-19 restrictions.
This concert is made possible by the generous support of Yaquina Bay Communications and Oregon Coast Bank.
