Bryce Boyer, a local volunteer, prepares the fuses -- dubbed "electronic matches" by veteran volunteers -- that connect shells to a rail. This system allows the computer control program to set off each piece at the planned, precise moment to match the music. Musical choreography takes place between Labor Day and the winter holidays of the preceding year.
