    tMP wishes a very happy 4th July to all of our US friends wherever you are. We hope you have a great time partying, grilling, celebrating or watching parades and fireworks, eating your 4th July picnic etc... and doing whatever makes you guys happy on your special independence day.

    Here is an interesting link if anyone wants to know a little more about this day.

    I can't believe I have to teach on the 4th of July! How rubbish is that!!!

    Seriously though if you read the link you'll find some info that is very stereotypical about Independence Day...and all quite accurate from my experience...I'm really missing home today...no burgers, no brats, no fruit salad, no fireworks, no parades and marching bands :-(

    Thanks for the Happy wishes tMP staff!!

    But you've got a special tMP logo to try and make up for it! Have a nice day y'all :D !

    I'm marching in three (count 'em, 3) parades today with a 30-pound (weight, not value!) sousaphone on my shoulder. The only possible justification for this lunacy is that I'm getting paid for it, albeit a pittance...Hardly the same as Whit Friday...

    In the evening, Chicago Brass Band is playing a full-length concert for the Lake Forest Symphony Orchestra Series before we shove off tomorrow morning for the WMC in Kerkrade.

    And what is Amercians' favourite patriotic tune by which to watch the fireworks display on 4 July? Something by Sousa, right? Wrong. It's by that all-time great American composer, Peter Illyitch Tchaikovsky: the 1812 Overture. Sure enough, we're playing
    Denis Wright's brass band arrangement of this piece to accompany the boom-booms to send the crowds home with "oohs" and "ahhs" and smiles.

    I had the same problem until I followed theMusicMan'sadvice and tried Ctrl F5 to clear previous settings, then it worked ;)

    Thanks John,

    We had a good 4th. Unlike Steve we only played one concert. A morning concert for a city-wide pancake breakfast. It rained all through it, but the band was on a shell so only the end players got wet and the crowd had various selters throughout the park.
