Boston’s Musical Tradition on the 4th of July

In my opinion, Boston is one of the best places to be on the 4th of July.  The city is so alive between the crowds watching Old Ironsides turn around in the harbor, the Blue Angels flying overhead, and the best part of all… the Boston Pops Orchestra performing on the Esplanade in conjunction with the spectacular fireworks show.  Spectators come in the thousands to scope out a good picnic spot along the Charles River and await the show.  This Boston Pops show is legendary and being there in person is an unforgettable experience.  I think it’s fantastic that orchestral music is the chosen genre for this huge celebration in Boston!
