Staff Report

The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale will perform a free Fourth of July concert in the Solvang Veterans Memorial Hall at 2 p.m., strategically placed between the parade and fireworks show.

This year, the chorale and student musicians from SYV Jazz Studio will deliver a rousing concert of Americana, traditional and patriotic music. Selections will include familiar anthems and folk songs.

Typically, the hall fills quickly, so people are advised to come early to ensure a good seat.

Under the direction of Dr. Michael Eglin, this concert promises to be a toe-tapping and uplifting event that has been made possible with support from Solvang Rotary.
