Music On the 1st, Nyack Fireworks On July 4th

Come to Nyack on July 4th to see dueling fireworks displays fill the sky over the Hudson River. The Village of Nyack will launch their aerial show from the west bank at about the same time Tarrytown will light up the skies from the east side of the river, shortly before 9pm on Friday, the 4th of July.

The Nyack display, which will be launched from Memorial Park on the Hudson River, can be seen from any place in the village where there is a clear view of the south east sky.

The village’s celebration of USA’s birthday starts at 7:30pm on Tuesday, July 1 with “An American Salute: Musical Fireworks,” a free concert featuring the Orangetown Concert Band conducted by Charles Yassky in Nyack’s Memorial Park. Come hear a program of Sousa Marches, selections from the American Songbook, Broadway favorites, and opera. “It will be a great concert honoring America’s birthday performed by some of the area’s great musicians,” says Yassky. The July 1 concert will also include a reading of the Gettysburg Address by WQXR’s Elliott Forrest, accompanied by the Orangetown Concert Band.

To get you in the mood for the events, here’s a montage of the 2010 Nyack fireworks, set to Stars And Stripes Forever played by the Orangetown Concert Band on July 3, 2012.
