Mozart’s “Horn Concerto No. 3 in E flat.”

“Patriots and Princesses” is set for 7:30 p.m. on July 5, right after Independence Day. Listen for oboist James Prodan performing “Gabriel’s Oboe,” bass trombonist Robert Mott playing “Hymn to the Earth” and vocalist Martha McKenna singing “How Far I’ll Go” and “Let It Go” from modern Disney favorites “Moana” and “Frozen.”

“American Songs” will be the season finale at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 15. Listen for Greg Harris performing “Caprice Valsant” on xylophone and for “Trombone Job,” a piece arranged by Richard Domek.
