Truly an amazing evening! The symphony was so lovely to listen to, they had a fiddler that was jaw dropping and the entire portion after the intermission was "Elvis"-then fireworks-just WOW. They honored all military, had a woman who could belt...continued

This was great show, with a combination of the Symphony, a first rate fiddler and, of course, "Elvis" in full Elvis outfit and antics. It was a a lot of fun--ending with a beautiful fireworks show!

I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful music of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra under the stars on a warm summer evening....the talent of "Elvis" in the Tribute to Elvis...followed by the fireworks display! Truly spectacular!!

Was disappointed in Elvis. If you are going to impersonate then don't put your own spin on it. Elvis was out of the box & this guy wasn't! He also sang too many songs made famous by someone else.

Wonderful show with lots of patriotism... especially appreciated the honor given to each branch of the military. Enjoyed the Elvis impersonator...beautiful Elvis-like voice and moves. Great fireworks and a delightful way to spend the 4th of July!!

The Pacific Symphony was great! We were not that impressed with the fellow who was performing the tribute to Elvis Presley. His voice was good, but his impersonation of Elvis was very below average. We have seen much better impersonators of...continued

The Pacific Symohony can hold its own with any orchestra which I have heard. The fiddler from Texas was phenonominal. The Elvis impersonator could have been 10 minutes less. The fireworks over powered the music. If the drive to the Hollywood...continued

The symphony was excellent, the female soloist was outstanding and the guest fiddle player was amazing. The Elvis impersonator was very mediocre.

Beautiful music by the Pacific Symphony. Fiddle player Tom Demer was awesome! Kraig Parker would have made "The King" proud. Gorgeous fireworks - a lovely evening under the stars at the Verizon Amphitheatre!

The symphony was great . . . the impersonator was not. His selection of songs centered around the 70s and 80s. The audience was primarily 60 and over. He should have adjusted his selection to reflect the age of the audience.
