Boston Landmarks Orchestra

Tonight the Boston Landmarks Orchestra played at Dorchester Park, which is just down the street from my house. We picked up subs and headed over for a "picnic" and to enjoy the music. It was a Red Sox themed program, which was very cool - a few patriotic songs, Take Me Out To The Ballgame, Heart from Damn Yankees, and a song that the orchestra commissioned called Lifting the Curse: A Story of the Red Sox. The narration was written by Bill Littlefield, of NPR's Only A Game.

If you're in Boston and interested in seeing the Landmarks Orchestra, they play every Wednesday night at 7 PM at the Hatch Shell during the summer - the last performance is September 5th and there's more info on the specific programs at their website.
