Fireworks and Sousa

One of my favorite annual events, if I'm in town, is the concert the Oakland East Bay Symphony puts on every July 3 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, California.  There's nothing quite like watching a fireworks display (Richmond does theirs early) while listening to a full symphony orchestra play John Philip Sousa marches.  It was a gorgeous night; the symphony showcased two very talented young soloists, a singer and a pianist; there was a huge full moon.  I'd like to share a few photos I took last night.

… and my "moon shot":

Moon over the East Bay hills

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, you really ought to put this one on your calendar for next year.  Best of all – it's FREE!
