PRESIDENTS DAY SPECIAL – New Verse for the National Anthem
President’s Day Weekend. I only discovered that because I mentioned to someone I was going skiing on Monday to avoid the crowds and they proceeded to burst my bubble with the news that Monday is a holiday – probably not a good day for avoiding crowds on the ski slope.

So in honor of this holiday, under the circumstances, we decided an appropriate gesture would be to provide a new verse for The Star Spangled Banner – sort of an updated verse that expands on the verse we are familiar with. So here it is, performed from the balcony of the Whitehouse.

The New Verse for the National Anthem
With our banner raised high, we must ponder a choice
Those who truly are free, offer freedom with grace
Those who truly are brave. will invite every voice
No matter their creed, and no matter their race

For this flag bears the theme of our country’s great dream
if we follow its course, then our past we redeem
and then we shall witness the flag of our land
as the truth and the power of Founder’s great plan

    ‘ Just listened to Presidents Day Special. First of all, your quartet-singing is nothing less than spectacular! Diction is impeccable, as is intonation. Nice arrangement too!

    As for parody, this is not humor, it is another beautiful statement of American aspirations. Please do a lot more of this splendid quartet singing. It is so wonderful, it compels careful listening just for musical reasons.

    ‘ Loved it!
