If Your Music Doesn’t Have Cannons, You’re Doing It Wrong!

Here’s an excerpt from the performance of the 1812 Overture played by the Boston Pops on July 4, 2016 accompanied by the 101st Field Artillery. The fellow in the white jacket is the conductor for the artillery. And he’s reading the actual score that Tchaikovsky wrote that included the timing for the cannons.

And here’s another view of it, with fireworks and field artillery on display.

Happy Fourth everyone!

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
