This summer, the Houston Symphony returns to Miller Outdoor Theatre with five FREE concerts, including our annual Fourth of July celebration, Star-Spangled Salute complete with fireworks courtesy of Miller Theatre Advisory Board. The family-friendly "Exxon Mobil Summer Symphony Nights" bring audiences the sights and sounds of Houston's symphony. For many Houstonians, July 4th just isn’t complete without Tchaikovsky’s rousing 1812 Overture, punctuated with cannon blasts!
