Independence Day Music Festival 

The Trinity Artist Series pulls out all the stops for its annual Fourth of July festival, which this year includes a special tribute to veterans of World War II. What began as an alternative supplement to traditional fireworks and picnics has become a popular community event encompassing a wide array of musical and other performances. Boasting more than 100 performers, the three-hour extravaganza features the Navy Band of New Orleans, Color Guard, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis and the New Orleans Trombone Choir directed by Milton Bush. The Caledonian Society of Dancers and Pipes will add some Scottish flavor to the red, white and blue. Trinity's director of music ministries, Albinas Prizgintas (pictured), will man the church's 5,000-pipe organ and play rousing Fourth of July favorites by John Philip Sousa and George Gershwin. Free admission. — Allison Good
