2020 Salute to America Update

For the first time in its 28-year run, “Salute to America” will not be held live in Greenfield Village during Fourth of July weekend to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This year, The Henry Ford is proud to announce that WDIV-Local 4 will produce an hour-long primetime program filled with all the music and fanfare for which the Salute to America concerts are known and loved. The televised special will remain proudly supported by the event’s long-time sponsors Bank of America and Ford Motor Company.

Jason Carr and Tati Amare of WDIV-Local 4’s “Live in the D” will host the special from Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford. Music will include encore performances drawn from the orchestra’s extensive DSO Replay archive recorded at Orchestra Hall prior to the pandemic.

In addition, a DSO brass quintet will be featured in a newly recorded segment at Greenfield Village. Viewers will also learn how the July 4th holiday was celebrated during America’s centennial, as well as get an up close look at an authentic muzzle-loading Napoleanic-era cannon used during the “1812 Overture.”

This unique “Salute to America” broadcast will premiere on WDIV-Local 4 on July 3 at 8:00 pm EST.
