CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cleveland Orchestra, under the direction of William Eddins, will perform The Star-Spangled Spectacular brought to you by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, its 24th annual free community concert in downtown Cleveland, on Monday, July 1, on Public Square. 

The family-friendly concert and pre-concert festivities will be hosted by WCPN ideastream's Dee Perry. 

Beginning at 9:00 p.m., The Cleveland Orchestra and William Eddins will perform a program featuring popular American favorites including Samuel Ward's America the Beautiful and John Philip Sousa's The Stars and Stripes Forever. 

Also on the program are Randy Newman's Suite from Toy Story to recognize Mr. Newman's recent induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and the "Superman March" by John Williams honoring the 75th anniversary of Superman. 

The concert culminates with Tchaikovsky's "1812" Overture and will be followed by a fireworks display, weather permitting.  Further details will be announced later in May.

This program is funded in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
