    I have been told that military protocol mandates that the Star Spangled Banner must be played in the key of bflat. Is that correct?

    • Hi Theresa,

      I’m not aware of a regulation that requires military arrangements be in the key of B-flat major, although this is a common key for wind bands. B-flat is also the key of the sheet music publication of the so-called “Service Version” and most editions of the anthem are in B-flat. If there is a singer, some would prefer a higher or lower key, so I would guess that military regulations allow for some flexibility. I would also think that veterans groups singing along would prefer a lower key, at least A-flat, which is in fact the key recommended by the so-called 1942 Code for the National Anthem.
