The Hudson Valley Philharmonic Orchestra and fireworks at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds last night: it was a sublime event! The acoustics were fabulous. The musical program was varied, appropriate, lengthy and ambitious. The fireworks and simultaneous music filled my heart with joy. What a classy and celebratory event! Thank you HV Philharmonic, Mr. Grems, and the many individuals who contributed to this event. We are fortunate to have this level of sophistication in the Hudson Valley.
