The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra ventures to Deerfield Township, OH to show the colors on Friday, July 7 at 7:30 p.m., in Cottell Park. “Let Freedom Sing,” is a musical retrospective that offers historical insight into America’s military conflicts since 1776. The first half of the program chronologically weaves an eclectic group of tunes associated with U.S. wars and military engagements, from the Revolutionary War through the Mogadishu, Somalia event, captured in the film Black Hawk Down. Local television veterans Rob Reider and Nancy James join the KSO for a patriotic pastiche including “The Battle of New Orleans,” “ The Ballad of the Green Berets,” “Over There” and “You Can’t Blame Your Uncle Sammy.” A stirring rendition of Dwayne Obrien’s “We Remember” with bagpipes and orchestra and The Story of the “Star Spangled Banner” are also on the musical menu, along with traditional favorites — God Bless America, Victory at Sea, Yankee Doodle and Stars and “Stripes Forever.”
