On July 4th, 2008, A Capitol Fourth Celebrates Independence Day in Washington, D.C. with Spectacular Fireworks over the Washington Monument


Live on PBS from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol

Friday, July 4th, from 8:00 to 9:30 pm ET
(check local listings)


Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning film, theater and television actor Jimmy Smits hosts the 28th annual broadcast of America’s biggest and best-loved 4th of July concert on PBS, featuring unrivaled musical performances from some of the country’s best known and award-winning artists, as well as a spectacular fireworks display on the National Mall over the Washington Monument.

Grammy winners Huey Lewis and the News, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, rock ‘n’ roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis, Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell, classical superstar Hayley Westenra and soprano Harolyn Blackwell will perform a selection of patriotic and celebratory music with the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Erich Kunzel.

The event will also feature a special salute to our Olympic athletes with figure skater and Gold medal winner Scott Hamilton. The July 4th concert finale includes Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" – an audience favorite and now A Capitol Fourth tradition – featuring the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets and complete with live cannon fire provided by the United States Army Presidential Salute Battery. The Choral Arts Society of Washington, under the direction of Norman Scribner, returns to the show. The Joint Armed Forces Color Guard of the Military District of Washington will also be featured on this as well as the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps.

America's National Anthem


Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics to
"The Star Spangled Banner"
on the back of an envelope!
It was the only piece of paper handy
when he was struck with inspiration.
