Join us for a concert in honor of Francis Scott Key’s The Star Spangled Banner on its 200th anniversary, performed by voice students of the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance and conducted by Jerry Blackstone of the University Musical Society. If you can't make it, navigate to a livestream of the event.
After the world class performance, enjoy star-spangled birthday cupcakes on the Diag and learn a bit about how the song came to be our national anthem. The U-M ROTC will close the event by raising the flag on the recently-restored central campus flagpole, which originally came from the Chicago World’s Fair.
Allow time to view the adjacent exhibit, Banner Moments: The National Anthem in American Life.
