    Saw the performance on PBS tonight at the Washington DC 4th celebration. It was very impressive accompanying the fireworks.

    My favorite rendition was the San Antonio Symphony years ago at a 4th celebration. They brought a cannon in from the army base. It was something else, scared the heck out of my sons (they were little kids at the time).

    We heard it years ago at Wolf Trap with friends; one of our friends didn't realize they'd be using live cannon, and certainly didn't realize they were on our side of the lawn. When they went off, she absolutely came off the ground about three feet - from a sitting position!

    Go ahead, in the highly unlikely event that you have something useful or entertaining to say. :D
