[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Move over Boston Pops!  Salem, Oregon had its own celebration for Independence Day that engaged all ages with an evening concert of patriotic songs, classical pops, and special guests.  A full symphonic orchestra accompanied by the voices of the Capital City Singers and the Willamette Master Chorus performed a 90-minute evening filled with familiar music that was capped off with the spectacular firework show that got underway promptly at 10PM. Families were encouraged to bring picnic lunches into the grounds, and picnic they did. Food and products Vendors were staged throughout the entire concert venue.
