ABOUT THE SHOW

WE ROCKED TO PATRIOTIC FAVES THAT MADE UP
THE COUNTRY’S SOUNDTRACK THIS FOURTH.

The 41st annual celebration of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks saluted the American spirit through a dynamic score performed by the West Point Band, and, of course, the largest Independence Day fireworks display in the nation. The 25-minute pyrotechnics show featured breathtaking effects that lit up the night sky. In programming music for the fireworks, we chose familiar patriotic standards and military marches as well as gospel, country, classical and jazz tunes. Here were some of the performers from the 2017 show!
