Celebrate Independence Day with Broadcast ‘Americana’ Concert by LCPC!

This year the popular LCPC Americana Concert will celebrate the words of Abraham Lincoln with the presentation of Aaron Copland’s epic “Lincoln Portrait” featuring special guest, actor Courtney B. Vance, presenting Lincoln’s famous words.

Salutes to America, our veterans and iconic American composer Aaron Copland will be celebrated as part of a La Canada Presbyterian Church concert, “Americana” which will be broadcast twice: on Sunday, June 27 at 2 p.m. and Friday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m.

This special concert will be streamed twice via the LCPC website at:  live.lacanadapc.org
The concert will recognize those who have died for our freedom and liberty as well as the current and past veterans of our Armed Forces.  As part of this recognition, the choir and orchestra will combine to present “Because of the Brave” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and everyone will join in singing the ever popular “Armed Forces Medley.”We will also join in a prayer for peace by presenting two works “Down by the Riverside,” and “This Is My Song.” Faces of America will include “Shenandoah,” “On a Wonderful Day Like Today,” a tribute to Cowboy movies “Theme from The Magnificent Seven,” and a tribute to Abigail Adams.  Other patriotic favorites include “This Is My Country,” “God of Our Fathers,” John Philip Sousa’s “Semper Fidelis March” plus the ever popular “Stars and Stripes Forever” with indoor fireworks.   As has become custom, the multimedia presentation will feature inspirational videos, photos from American history and picturesque images from across the country.  Tyler Wright, former CEO of the  YMCA of the Foothills will once again act as host and emcee.

“Americana” will include a cast of more than 100 singers and instrumentalists directed by Jack Lantz, LCPC’s Director of Music and Worship Arts. It will be a multimedia concert that tells the story of our great country and some of the major events of America’s history, and is suitable for all ages.

La Canada Presbyterian Church is located at 626 Foothill Blvd. Worship services are both in-person and livestreamed on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. (traditional style) and 10:30 a.m. (contemporary style).
