Show off your red, white and blue pride as the Houston Symphony continues its long-standing Independence Day tradition at Miller Outdoor Theatre for ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights: Star-Spangled Salute. The national holiday just wouldn’t be complete without Tchaikovsky’s rousing 1812 Overture from The Hill, plus a little something extra this year — the music of legendary American musicians like Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Prince. “I’ve tried to make a balance between patriotic music and good ol’ summer fun-loving music, and I hope people enjoy the mix this year,” says Principal POPS Conductor Steven Reineke. He also promises a soulful performance of “America the Beautiful” by Grammy-nominated artist Ryan Shaw. Stick around after the 90-minute show (no intermission) for spectacular fireworks.

8:30 p.m. Tuesday. 6000 Hermann Park. For information, call 832-487-7102 or visit milleroutdoortheatre.com. Free.
