VERO BEACH ― Socially distanced patriotism will be on display during the Space Coast Symphony Wind Orchestra's Sweet Land of Liberty drive-in concert on Friday, Aug. 14, 7 p.m., at Pathway Church in Vero Beach.

The second in the series of fresh air concerts, Sweet Land of Liberty will honor those who have worn our nation's uniform, as well as defense workers.

The annual patriotic concert is filled with jaunty marches, anthems and American-inspired themes. Attendees are invited to wear red, white and blue in a show of patriotic solidarity.

Musicians will play their instruments safely separated from each other, while concert attendees can remain in their cars and tune their radios to the live feed, or set up their own seating next to their vehicles.

Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Conductor and Artistic Director Aaron T. Collins will direct Sweet Land of Liberty, with patriotic songs by Lee Greenwood, Richard Rodgers, Morton Gould, Adam Gorb, and marches from John Philip Sousa.

"Our musicians cannot wait for the second concert of our drive-in summer series,” said Mr. Collins. “Especially to be able to play the thrilling music that honors our men and women in uniform. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude that we can never repay to all our veterans and those who work in support of our national defense."

Tickets for the drive-up concerts are $10 per person or $25 per carful of adults. Admission is free for ages 18 and under or with a student ID. Advance online ticket sales are encouraged, to help limit social interaction with parking attendants.

For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call (855) 252-7276.

All Treasure Coast drive-up summer series concerts will be performed on Fridays at 7 p.m. at Pathway Church, 1105 58th Ave., Vero Beach.
