Concerts in The Garden

Parker looks serious.
Guess how the boys passed their time?
(we had a lot of it - 3 hours to be exact!)
But it was worth it!

The conductor sometime during the concert.

And the music in full swing! It was the night of Big Band and Swing favorites.
Crowd pleasing still, some 60 years later.

The place was packed.
The actual lawn stretched out much farther from where we were, which was close to the stage. I was really surprised at how many people still enjoy Big Band music.
I have enjoyed it for many years and am loving the huge resurgence it is making.

A great highlight of the evening was to see couples young and old hit the street swing dancing during the concert.
(note to self: take lessons before next year's' concert)
The evening concluded with a magnificent display of fireworks. Even Kathryn enjoyed them, reaching up her little arms and trying to touch them.
What a great beginning to summer!
