Classical Music and Classic Fireworks – Summerlin Style!

The Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra held their eighth annual Star Spangled Spectacular at the Hills Park located in the Summerlin homes community during the evening of the fourth of July. MS Las Vegas Real Estate was thrilled to be in attendance and a number of members of The Sterling Team were on hand for the festivities. This beautiful celebration of America’s Independence was aired live on cable television (Cox Channel 96) throughout Southern Nevada. Included again this year was a special salute to the US Armed Forces with a flyover consisting of A-10 fighter jets dispatched from nearby Nellis Air Force Base especially for the occasion. The show itself was an impressive concert in which the music of the Las Vegas Philharmonic was choreographed to the pyrotechnics of Zambelli Fireworks Internationale. The actual fireworks display lasted around 15 minutes and began about 8:30 in the evening. At about 4:00pm the Hills Park event-staff opened their gates to about two-thousand patrons of the Las Vegas Philharmonic. The Hills Park, located in the middle of ‘The Hills’ village in Summerlin boasts a large outdoor amphitheatre that gets plenty of use all year around. Residents of Summerlin real estate enjoy parks and recreational facilities of this caliber in every one of Summerlin’s 19 neighborhood villages. The Las Vegas Philharmonic spent the evening under the direction of Harold Welle, the philharmonic’s founding musical director. Attendees were treated to patriotic songs in classical style reflecting the various phases of our nation’s history. At dusk, a large American flag was raised by crane to create a backdrop for the spectacle that was about to begin. As the Symphony continued to play, fireworks by Zambelli Internationale began to light up the evening sky. Once the final shower of fireworks was complete and the last note was struck, the audience in the park immediately responded with great applause denoting these artists’ true talent. The “Star Spangled Spectacular” is an annual event held at the Hills Park in Summerlin on every Fourth of July. Next year, the Philharmonic will hold their ninth Star Spangled Spectacular, and with beautiful performances like this one, spectacular attendence is assured.
