NEWS RELEASE
LONGMONT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
*************************
As we approach the July 4 holiday, we are saddened not to be able to see you at Thompson Park to celebrate our nation's independence and honor all those who have served, past and present. We certainly support the city's decision to cancel this event and understand the precautions that must be made to ensure the health and safety of our community.

We will miss the orchestra performing the Armed Forces Salute, the Presentation of the Colors, and honoring all those in the park who have or are presently serving our nation.

We will miss having the Longmont Chorale and the Longmont Youth Symphony perform.

We will miss all the kids lining up to “conduct” our favorite marches.

We will miss the Picnic Contest, with so many of you preparing the most delicious feasts and decorating your tents and tables.

We will miss the orchestra's grand finale of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, with Kim Knake and his cannoneers. 

We will miss our wonderful orchestra presenting a patriotic concert for our entire community.

We will miss seeing and thanking all of you who celebrate this Independence Day.

In honor of this day, our dedicated musicians have created a virtual performance with an excerpt of the 1812 Overture, thanks to Rob Stahly, associate principal Cellist and his "engineering" talents. Please visit our website Longmontsymphony.org on Saturday, July 4 in the afternoon, to view this performance. 

We wish all of you a very happy, healthy, and safe holiday.

Thank you for supporting the Longmont Symphony Orchestra.
