On Thursday, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic concludes its 70th season as they present their annual "Patriotic Pops" concert in a brand new venue, Parkview Field.
The annual tradition features star-spangled favorites from the likes of John Phillip Sousa, Morton Gould, and even John Williams.
The Philharmonic's Associate Conductor, Sameer Patel, will be at the podium for the occasion.
WBOI's Julia Meek invited Patel to the Madge Rothschild Studios to reflect on this milestone year and the Philharmonic's role in the community.
