Fox Valley Orchestra Night

July 5, 2013 at 3:48 AM

Tonight I went to Aurora to celebrate the Fourth with fireworks and, before, from 8:15pm-9:15pm, the Fox Valley Orchestra! I can't remember everything they played, although they did play 'America, the Beautiful' and 'Stars and Stipes', two classics. I think they played Strauss and music from a play for Aladdin. Unfortunately, I missed a bit of it at the beginning, but that was okay. They were testing the fireworks during the performance, which was annoying, except at one time. The firework exploded right in time with a large downbeat from the orchestra! It was cool! Well, it was a pretty good night, although not that much happened after the fireworks, except we went home. Time for bed! :)
