The Cleveland Orchestra's free community concert is on Mall B Wednesday night in downtown Cleveland.

This year's Star Spangled Spectacular will feature baritone Nathan Gunn singing "If Ever I Would Leave You" from the musical Camelot and two selections from Aaron Copland's "Old American Songs." Additional highlights from the program include John Williams' "Flight to Neverland" from Hook, as well as works by Gershwin, Sousa, and Tchaikovsky.

"We are delighted to be able to present the Star-Spangled Spectacular concert despite the closing of Public Square this year," says Gary Hanson, executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra. "This annual event has become a beloved summer tradition and we are grateful to Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, KeyBank, and our other producing partners who make this event possible, and to the city of Cleveland for its assistance in securing the location for this year. We are proud to bring Northeast Ohio together with music to celebrate a great city and a great nation."

The annual concert attracts up to 80,000 people to downtown Cleveland and ends with a spectacular display of fireworks.

The event, which usually takes place on Public Square, has been moved due to construction. Mall B is located between the Global Center for Health Innovation and Cleveland Public Auditorium on St. Clair Avenue.

Pre-concert music starts at 5 p.m.The concert begins at 9, followed by fireworks.

Attendees are encouraged to take the RTA Rapid to and from the event. Don't forget to bring your own chairs or blankets.
