Trinity Independence Day Music Festival 

Trinity music director Albinas Prizgintas delivers for the fifth year a typically intriguing musical brainstorm as a way to celebrate Independence Day -- an eclectic mix of music and dance, with a dash of theater and performance, collected for confounding purpose in his unique vision. A presentation by a color guard and various patriotic music and dances are integral elements to the theme, but the four-and-a-half-hour program holds much more. Prizgintas will play sousa and keys on Trinity's 5,000-pipe organ; among his selections will be Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," to be performed with fellow pianist Robin Holtz Williams. Also scheduled to appear: trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis (pictured), Jimmy Maxwell and the Louis Armstrong Society Band, New Leviathon Oriental Fox-Trot Orchestra, Mardi Gras Chorus, Caledonian Society Scottish Dancers and Pipes, New Orleans Trombone Choir and more. Free admission; refreshments served. At 5 p.m. Sunday, July 3, Prizgintas delivers another, though scaled-down, patriotic program with trumpeters Pete Wolbrette and Tod Engelhardt.

7:30 p.m. to midnight, Friday, July 1
Trinity Episcopal Church, 1329 Jackson Ave., 670-2520; www.trinityc.net
