Fun Friday - Happy Birthday to the U.S.A. Boston Pops Style

July the 4th is a marvellous time for music.  I remember always listening to the Boston Pops concert that ends with marvellous fireworks.  My brother & his wife travelled to see Arthur Fiedler with the Boston Pops and sat on a grassy hillside for the concert.

I lived in Windsor as a kid so the celebrations of July 1 and July 4 were celebrated over the Detroit River with a spectacular fireworks display.  Windsor & Detroit joined together to create this Freedom Festival that culminated with the fireworks.

So all in all fireworks & orchestral music always are a part of my experience as a Canadian of our American neighbours country celebration July 4.  Happy 4th friends & neighbours to the south!!
