For 45 years, Colorado Springs has celebrated our nation’s birth with music from Katy Perry’s Firework to Tchaikovsky’s notorious 1812 Overture.
Taking their lead from the legendary Fabulous Fourth established by Charles Ansbacher, Bee Vradenburg and the City of Colorado Springs, this annual concert connects our community in a way like no other. In fact, for thousands of Springs residents, it wouldn’t be Independence Day without the Philharmonic in Memorial Park (and the blast of a few Howitzer cannons!). The way our community embraces this event says a lot about the vitality of performing arts in Southern Colorado.
