Tuscaloosa 4th of July concert’s future in question

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – It’s been a 4th of July tradition over the last few years in west Alabama. Fireworks accompanied by patriotic songs played by the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra. Unfortunately dwindling ticket sales may put an end to the Independence Day celebration.

The orchestra will be playing the 4th of July concert at the Tuscaloosa amphitheater next month. But the city has noticed the number of tickets sold has declined during the past three years, which has started a conversation about the program’s future.

Orchestra members think bad weather has been the major factor in the declining ticket sales. But rain or shine they are encouraging the public to show their support, to keep the tradition an annual occurrence.
