The Lexington Philharmonic has released the program for its Fourth of July Concert – A Celebration of American Music, which will be presented July 2 at 8 p.m. at the Old Morrison Building at Transylvania University and Gratz Park and July 4 in Versailles.

Like last year, new Philharmonic music director Scott Terrell says he wants to broaden the concept of American music, complementing patriotic standards with other fare, primarily film scores and jazz, this year.

“It’s an even blend of various things,” Terrell said of the show, in an interview this afternoon. “It is something for everybody.” Here’s the lineup.
