VAIL ” The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra finishes this year’s residency with the annual patriotic concert this afternoon. The concert, titled “A Salute to Freedom,” is a musical salute to American Independence and will consist of a variety of pieces ranging from favorite marches, national melodies, Olympic fanfare and big band tunes. Vocalists Doug LaBrecque and Christiane Noll will join the ROP. Seat tickets for the show are sold out but free lawn seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Saturday evening Bravo! will host an intimate evening performance of the two-act chamber piece “I’ll be seeing you … Love songs of WWII” with famed cabaret singer Andrea Marcovicci. Marcovicci was hailed as the “most Sinatra-like” of the new generation of cabaret performers by Life Magazine. The piece wowed a sold-out crowd in New York and has played throughout the country, as well as in Normandy, in recognition of the original ‘Band of Brothers’ immortalized by the HBO series. This concert will take place at the Vilar Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are $69.

On Sunday, Bravo! welcomes back The Philadelphia Orchestra for another season with the festival. The orchestra, under the skillful direction of Charles Dutoit, will be joined by pianist Yefim Bronfman for this opening night program of music by Rossini, Stravinski, and Brahms. Bronfman is widely regarded as one of the most talented virtuoso.
