For the 4th
The longstanding tradition of the Boston Pops Orchestra is to give a concert on the Fourth of July, inevitably closed by Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. This is from the Bicentennial Year of 1976, when the Pops was still helmed by Arthur Fiedler, the face of the Pops throughout my childhood and young adulthood. May he rest in peace; and may you enjoy the music.
