The Henry Ford and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra are continuing their over 25-year partnership in 2021 with a safe expression of our traditional Salute to America event.
New in 2021, guests of Salute to America: Summer Stroll are invited to walk at their own pace and listen to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra perform in smaller ensembles across the venue. Each symphony ensemble will be rotated throughout the evening to represent each section of the orchestra (brass, woodwinds, strings, etc.), rather than performing on a single grand stage.
Take in the unique atmosphere of Greenfield Village in the summer with a series of historical decade vignettes, historical building experiences and free carousel rides. Enjoy your favorite summer treat as you listen to performance groups — showcasing a diverse assembly of music from American history, including choral singing, ragtime, jazz and more — around the Village Green. Delight in marching fifes and drums and an extraordinary fireworks display at the end of your evening.
