‘Thrilling’ Pacific Symphony July 4th Spectacular

Pacific Symphony July 4th Spectacular

Pacific Symphony’s blockbuster Summer Festival 2016 kicks off its final season at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre with a July 4th Spectacular, featuring a symphonic tribute to Michael Jackson’s music.

The first of five exceptional musical experiences under the stars, the Symphony’s holiday extravaganza begins with picnic baskets packed with goodies and the company of family and friends—all just a prelude to a celebratory, rockin’ good time with the orchestra and guest band, Windborne, whose lead singer James Delisco brings to life the genius of Michael Jackson.

Showcasing the best-known hits of the legendary “King of Pop”—from The Jackson 5 to the singer’s final film, “This Is It”—the concert includes music from the albums “Off the Wall,” “Thriller,” “Bad,” “Blood on the Dance Floor” and much more. Traditionally the best-attended concert of the year, this holiday celebration also honors American heroes and includes a moving fireworks finale orchestrated to patriotic classics.

Taking place Monday, July 4, at 8 p.m. (gates open at 6 p.m. for picnicking), the concert is led by Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman and marks the beginning of the Symphony’s final season at Irvine Meadows before the venue closes (new location to be announced).

Designed to evoke the memories of the last three decades with exhilarating and iconic music, this special season promises to be both exceptional and sentimental, as the Symphony bids a fond farewell to its summer home of the last 29 years.
