Barbershop quartets do justice to anthem
Of late, there have been many letters decrying the performance of our national anthem - "The Star Spangled Banner" - as though it were some pop song to be stylized at the singer's whim.
If you want to hear the national anthem performed as an anthem should be performed, contact a registered quartet from the Barbershop Harmony Society. There have been several performances of this arrangement in the local area over the last year. The delivery is formal, respectful of the anthem and well received by the public.
Hearing the national anthem performed as it should be is stirring. I encourage you all to try it at least once.
