Fourth Of July Fireworks Symphony
Come spend this Independence Day with 100,000 of your closest friends! Held at the Austin Symphony Orchestra this July 4th, Central Texans will hurry to claim their spot for one of the largest Independence Day Celebrations in the state.
This year’s celebration will be on the banks of Lady Bird Lake at Vic Mathias Shores (formerly Auditorium Shores) in front of the Long Center for the Performing Arts. The Austin Symphony is proud to bring the 40th Annual July 4th Concert and Fireworks that is presented by AT&T U-verse. This is planned, produced and performed entirely by the Austin Symphony—with the help from generous sponsors.
There will be over tens of thousands of families that will be decked out in red, white and blue to celebrate a beautiful evening of fireworks over the city skyline backed by the symphonic patriotic classics. The orchestra will perform at 8:30 pm followed by the “mile-high” fireworks at approximately 9:30 pm. Grab yourself a picnic and a blanket, you won’t want to miss this outdoor event! Celebrate your independence at the Vic Mathias Shores!
The mission of the Austin Symphony Orchestra Society, Inc. is to enhance the cultural quality of life for the adults and young people of Austin and Central Texas by providing excellence in music performance and educational programming.
