In honor of the nation’s freedom, the Houston Symphony presents ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights:A Star-Spangled Salute, a one-night performance where children and families are welcome to come and hang out under the stars as conductor Michael Krajewski and the Houston Symphony put on a show. There’ll be patriotic, heartfelt performances of everything American, and the end — which will close with the 1812 Overture — should be quite a note on which to celebrate. If you’re so inclined, seats to the show will be available, but they’re -definitely not required. All you’ll need is a blanket and perhaps a picnic basket, and the hill above Miller Outdoor Theatre should provide the rest.
