In celebration of Star Spangled Music Day, the Music Division of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts hosted Metropolitan Opera star Susanne Mentzer who helped open an exhibit in the third floor reading room. Ms. Mentzer performed the anthem and engaged in a discussion with Music Division Chief George Boziwick. A video of the event is forthcoming on the NYPL YouTube channel. The exhibit: “The Star Spangled Banner” 1814–2014 celebrates the anthem, its historiography, and those that have performed it. The exhibit will run through November 29.
