A Capitol Fourth — Celebrate With the Beach Boys and Joshua Bell
Posted on July 2, 2018 at 8:00 am
Every year I look forward to the magnificent concert in front of the US Capitol Building on the 4th of July, broadcast on PBS. I’ve even been lucky enough to see it in person a couple of times.
This year, the Capitol Fourth concert features the Beach Boys, violinist Joshua Bell, Jimmy Buffett with the cast of his Broadway musical Margaritaville, opera star Renee Fleming, a capella all-stars Pentatonix, Broadway legend Chita Rivera, gospel legend CeCe Winans, the US Army Herald Trumpets, and “Pershing’s Own,” the magnificent US Army Band. Plus fireworks!
Here’s a reminder of last year’s concert.
