Nov 4- Today I am thankful for the local symphony. During the traditional school year period, they have a classical series as well as a pops series and specials in between, etc. In the summer, they have an outdoor program from June to Labor day. The best one is the summer, to me, is the 4th of July, which actually runs 4 days. I am very appreciate that we have access to this this wonderful orchestra and the ability to buy tickets to the shows we want to see.
