The New York Pops are offering a free download of music from the 2009 Macy's 4th of July Fireworks celebration -- including Stephen Flaherty's American River Suite featuring the vocal talents of Audra McDonald and Idina Menzel -- on the company's website for a limited time.

The piece includes lyrics by William Schermerhorn, as well as performances by Sara Caswell on violin, and the Choir Academy of Harlem. Visitors to The New York Pops website can also download two bonus tracks: River Medley and Americana Medley, both arranged by The New York Pops' Music Director-Designate Steven Reineke. The seven tracks are available for free download for a limited time, and will not be sold in stores.
