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.

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!
