Raise It Up

Raise It Up! Anthem for America Concert

When: Saturday, June 14, 2014, 2:30 – 4 PM

Where: National Mall (between 12th and 14h Streets Northwest)

Cost: FREE!

Join the Smithsonian’s American History Museum on June 14th as they host Raise It Up! Anthem for America, a national celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner.  On that day, people around the world will unite to sing our national anthem at 4:00 PM EDT and kick-off a Star-Spangled summer.

Here are three ways to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner on Flag Day:

  • Join the fun at the National Mall, between 12th and 14th Streets NW, for a concert featuring guitarist Kristen Capolino, local blues band Little Bit a Blues, a 400-person choir, The United States Air Force Concert Band, and the official chorus of the U.S. Air Force, the Singing Sergeants. See Francis Scott Key’s original “Star-Spangled Banner” manuscript on loan from the Maryland Historical Society, the dress opera singer Renée Fleming wore to sing at the anthem at the Super Bowl, and, of course, the real Star-Spangled Banner flag. Can’t make it? They’ll webcast it live online.
  • Host your own party! Educator Victoria Altman dishes up tips for delicious, star-spangled snacks. Don’t forget to watch the concert webcast and tune in to the Smithsonian Channel later that evening.

No matter how you celebrate, share your photos with the hashtag #raiseitup
