LR WIND SYMPHONY: 'STARS AND STRIPES'
7 p.m., MacArthur Park. Free.

Fourteen years strong, the Little Rock Wind Symphony's annual Flag Day concert has become a patriotic tradition. This year, the LRWS is blasting out a slate of marches, suites and patriotic show tunes by everyone from John Philip Sousa to John Williams. The shebang kicks off at 7 p.m. with presentation of colors by the U.S. Air Force Color Guard from Little Rock Air Force Base, but for the early birds, the MacArthur Museum will be open for patrons to browse their current exhibits, including war photography from World War II and Vietnam. Also, the museum invites concert goers to bring their tattered American flags for a proper flag disposal ceremony later in the year.
