Star-Spangled Symphony highlights Star-Spangled Sailabration - the June 13-19 international maritime festival in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, which launches Maryland's War of 1812 bicentennial commemoration.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate a brand-new, world premiere piece of music than by having the Blue Angels roaring overhead, over 40 tall ships and naval vessels and a great symphony orchestra performing the premiere.
