Just yesterday, my family attended a symphony in the park. I know it happened on July 1st, but the it represented the Fourth of July. It was a collection of patriotic songs and songs that represented America. During some of the songs, we were asked to sing along. Those songs were our “National Anthem”, “America the Beautiful”, and “God Bless America”. There was one song that represented our military and we were able to thank them for their service. Thinking of military, there was one song called “The Fallen Solider”.
Besides these patriotic songs, they played two overtures. The overture that was the most moving to me was the one from the musical, “Guys and Dolls”. I enjoyed that overture because of my strong love for musicals. I barley know “Guys and Dolls”, but I do know that it is a musical comedy. Musical are famous for being comic and family-friendly. Musicals represent America because America created them in the first place and is home to Broadway.
At the very end of this symphony, there was an amazing firework show. During parts of it, they played music, which added to the fun of seeing fireworks. Some them were bigger then others. The best display of fireworks that evening was during the grand finale.
This symphony also makes me proud to be an American. It feels nice to live in a country of freedom that values diversity and equality. So many things make America a wonderful country. It has some of the most loving and compassionate people. It is home to so many resources that is essential to survival. I will always feel proud to be from America.
