A Star-Spangled edition of Vivace this Friday!

We have a delightful Vivace program for you this Friday, July 5th. Many people will have the day off, so we'll try to bring you some extra-melodic music in the first two hours.

At 7 am, we'll have two works by Italian composer, Carlo-Alfredo Piatti. We'll have another in our series of Mozart's apocryphal symphonies and a flute concerto by Leopold Hofmann. And at 8 o'clock, we'll have a change of pace as we bring out the party hats and the red, white and blue bunting.

We'll enjoy an hour of great American music to celebrate the Independence Day weekend. As part of that celebration, we will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg with the debut of a specially recorded setting of the Gettysburg Address within the Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber.

We'll play you the very first national anthem of the United States and end the hour with some stirring American music by John Williams. So do join us for a sparkling, star-spangled version of Vivace this Friday!

You can also replay the program anytime from our archives. The program will be available for replay through 7/19/13
