Considering that it was Maestro Barry Tuckwell's final performance at the Antietam Battlefield, there was a bit of sadness surrounding the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 12th annual Salute to Independence July 5.

Now we have 250 more years of musical history, and when you want to get a younger audience, you must change something.
