Letter: Fourth of July shows should feature American composers

Fourth of July shows should feature American composers

I, like many others, enjoyed watching the PBS celebration of the Fourth of July on TV. But really, I thought playing the “1812 Overture” by Tchaikovsky was inappropriate. Any other day of the year, it would be fine. This piece is largely a rousing and patriotic Russian composition.

Surely, whoever produced this show could have come up with something more American.
