Musically, thus far 2017 has been an eventful year. Much has happened across various music genres and we still have five months to go. This year, on the fourth of July I was able to enjoy a wonderful orchestral concert close to me in Miami Shores. Barry University once again was host to the Miami Music Festival. I was able to attend and feature a couple of events last year, but this year I was excited to attend the very special Independence Day Pop’s concert.
