Edon High School Choir Takes Part In Star-Spangled Music Day Celebration

EHS Choir Sings Star-Spangled...Sept2014 PHOTO PROVIDED WEBThe Edon High School Choir, under the direction of Mrs. Cathy Frastaci, joined schools across the country to celebrate Star-Spangled Music Day by performing our country’s National Anthem. While Sunday, September 14, 2014 marked the 200th Anniversary of The Star-Spangled Banner, Friday, September 12 was designated Star-Spangled Music Day to commemorate this great occasion. Inspired at the sight of U.S. soldiers raising those “broad stripes and bright stars” to celebrate a crucial victory over the British at Fort McHenry, Francis Scott Key later penned the words that eventually gave new significance to a national symbol. A project of The Star Spangled Music Foundation (in partnership with the American Choral Directors Association, America Sings and Resounding Joy), Star-Spangled Music Day was set aside to have Americans everywhere, especially K-12 students throughout the United States, sing patriotic songs (including The Star-Spangled Banner) and discuss the history and significance of the anthem.
