Singing the National Anthem

March 24, 2013

I was so honored to sing the national anthem this past Friday at Federal Hall in NYC — what a beautiful acoustic! The hall is a national park site, where George Washington was inducted as the first president, just opposite the New York Stock Exchange. It’s a great place for sightseeing — you should check it out sometime.

More than a week ago, I performed Handel’s ‘Israel in Egypt’ with the Princeton Glee Club – part of the American Handel Society Festival.  I had just jumped off a red eye from Denver, after performing at the Bach Festival.  It was hectic but really fun!!! Click here for a live stream of Princeton concert.
