UPDATE: 7/1: Due to the forecasted thunderstorms, Boscobel has rescheduled the Celebrate Independence event with the Greater Newburgh Symphony for our rain date on Sunday, July 3 and will close the site by 5pm on Saturday. We are committed to prioritizing the safety of guests, performers, and staff.


Celebrate Independence with Boscobel and the Greater Newburgh Symphony and a concert designed around that most cherished of American values — Freedom. Bring a picnic and experience beautiful music in one of the world’s most beautiful places. Bring the family and stay for the gorgeous sunset. Unfortunately, West Point fireworks no longer align with this concert, but Conductor Russell Ger will be bringing his explosive artistic energy. Bring travel chairs and get ready to have a blast!

Join us for a VIP experience before the show at our Champagne Toast on the East Terrace of the Historic House Museum. Very limited capacity. Members receive 20% OFF! 

The program will serve as a joyous reminder of how lucky we are to be living in the Land of the Free. From the dawning of a new era with Strauss’ sunrise (made famous in 2001: A Space Odyssey), to the great hymn of liberty in Holst’s Jupiter, to the majesty of Kiev’s great gate dedicated to Tsar Alexander II emancipator of the serfs, to Lincoln’s magisterial words in Copland’s portrait of the former president, to the grand climax of Tchaikovsky’s beloved 1812 Overture.
