Dear Brentwood School Teachers and Staff:
I’m really looking forward to visiting Brentwood on Monday to talk about the history of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” My research has resulted in a set of recordings performed by the faculty and students at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Please use the links below to download a free copy with my compliments and appreciation for Brentwood’s hospitality.
- Poets & Patriots Recording Project (Free Audio Downloads)
- Poets & Patriots Contents Booklet (pdf)
- Star Spangled Music Youtube Channel (Videos of Performances)
There’s no need to review these in advance of my talk or to prep your students for my visit, but if you wish to learn more about the anthem’s history or to share these recordings with your students in the future. Please take advantage of the other resources at StarSpangledMusic.Org and I look forward to meeting you soon.
