Wind Ensemble: 16th Annual “Discovery: Music!” Concert

Now in its 16th year, the “Discovery: Music!” concert explores the cultural, historical, and melodic influences of an important musical work. Reprising a popular program from several years ago, this interactive and informative concert will explore the rather fascinating – and sometimes perilous – story of our national anthem. From its origins as a British drinking song to Francis Scott Key’s poetic lyrics from Defence of Fort M’Henry, the Star Spangled Banner arose to become a symbol of our nation’s resilience and pride.

Featuring CSUN Professor of Piano Dmitry Rachmanov.
