Family fun, patriotic sing-alongs and anthems, and a fiery post-concert blast! Order your picnic basket early and scoot over to Georgia’s new music venue destination — a breeze to get to from all points north, south, east and west of Alpharetta. The American Spirit is alive and well and thriving at a rip-roaring Fourth, with the ASO, the vibrantly gifted conductor Bridget Reischl and the formidable US Army Chorus. And don’t miss a special fireworks celebration following the concert!
