Fortunately, there are two easy ways to celebrate safely at home this year. While there won’t be fireworks, the U.S. Air Force Band of the West’s online celebration is bound to inspire a spark of pride in listeners.
The Band of the West — the traveling Air Force ensemble that’s performed for military and civilian audiences, presidents, heads of state and dignitaries — will perform an all-digital concert featuring other powerfully patriotic musical groups including Top Flight, the Ceremonial Marching Band, Dimensions in Blue, Freedom Brass, Nightwatch and the Concert Band.
Anyone looking for an extra dose of immersive, patriotic pride can follow the The Alamo on social media for a variety of Fourth of July content, including music, musket-firing demonstrations and living history presentations posted throughout the weekend (free, 9 a.m. Saturday, July 4-5 p.m. Sunday, July 5, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, thealamo.org).
