The Henry Ford and Detroit Symphony Orchestra will be saluting America live and in-person again this year -- but in a different manner than before.

The "Salute to America: Summer Stroll" takes place 6-10 p.m. June 30-July 3 at Greenfield Village in Dearborn. Rather than the en masse concert and picnic setting of previous years, the event will, as the title indicates, be set up as "a strolling musical experience" to encourage safety and space. The DSO will divide into smaller chamber-sized ensembles playing in various locations around the site, and there will be a variety of other performances including jazz, ragtime, choral singers and more.

A fireworks display will take place at the end of each evening,

Masks will not be required outdoors for those who are vaccinated. Masks are currently required for anyone wishing to visit one of the Village's indoor sites, or the Henry Ford.

Last year's "Salute to America was canceled by the pandemic. In its stead the Henry Ford and DSO teamed with WDIV for a televised event.

Tickets for the "Salute to America: Summer Stroll" start at 20.50. Sales and other details can be found via thf.org.

Starting July 8, Greenfield Village will be open to the public Thursday-Monday, with limited access for members only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting July 6.
