2015 July 4th Concert at Mount Hood

Under clearing skies and in one of most beautiful venues in Melrose, Mount Hood, the Mt. Hood Park Association held its 30th Annual July 4th concert on Saturday, July 4th. This years concert drew one of the largest crowds in recent history.

The Middlesex Concert Band of Wakefield, under the direction of Mark E. Olsen, provided spirited arrangements of many patriotic and show tunes to the enthusiastic approval of the audience. Ms. Carissa Scudieri, from Wakefield, and a regional winner of many talent contests, opened the concert with her wonderful rendition of the National Anthem.

The final and most exciting song of the evening included the band’s rendition of” Stars and Stripes Forever” which included our popular “Parade of Children” who waved their American flags while parading around the venue.
