San Angelo LIVE! presents and Downtown San Angelo, Inc. will host "A Star-Spangled Banner Concert and Fireworks" on July 3, 2022 at the Bill Aylor, Jr. Memorial RiverStage. The festivities are part of the second annual event called A Star-Spangled Banner Concert and Fireworks.

The concert headlines the San Angelo Community Band whose members consisting of San Angelo area musicians will perform the traditional finale of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's The Year 1812, Solemn Overture, Op. 49, popularly known as the 1812 Overture. The sky will explode with fireworks from two firing positions punctuated by cannon fire by Fort Concho's cannons situated across the Concho River from the RiverStage.

This year's fireworks display is bigger and better than years' prior in that we will use both The Celebration Bridge and the Oakes Street bridge as firing positions. Last year, only Celebration Bridge was used. The fireworks pyrotechnic artistry will be engineered and designed by Greg "Fly" Schatt. Fly is known for his terrific work at every San Angelo Rodeo performance for the past two decades. Expect fireworks to begin at sunset plus 15 minutes when a Fort Concho cannon fires the first shot during the 1812 Overture. On July 3 this year, official sunset in San Angelo is 8:50 p.m. Fifteen minutes later is 9:05 p.m.

Opening for the San Angelo Community Band will be 8-piece Mariachi Alma Mexicana of San Angelo. Last year, the group was a huge crowd favorite.

After the fireworks, those at the RiverStage will enjoy the music of the famous all-American music sensation, Chicago, performed by Chicago Tribute Authority. The 10-piece rock band features its own horn section, including a trumpet, trombone, and saxophone/flute. CTA will perform selections of Chicago's 60 years of hits, including Beginnings, Saturday in the Park, and for the purest of Chicago fans, the entire classic, Ballet for a Girl in Buchanan. The After Party will conclude at 11:00 p.m.
