Great Performances - Acoustix Sings Stars And Stripes Forever

flag of America


In honor of U.S. Memorial Day, I share with you today the official march of the United States of America: John Philip Sousa's "The Stars and Stripes Forever." This iconic march is so well-known that many Americans recognize both the intro and first strain melody and the melody from the trio. It also contains the most popular piccolo solo of all time.


This particular performance, however, is not the traditional military band rendition. This version is sung a cappella by one of the most accomplished barbershop quartets of all time, Acoustix. This track appears on their album Stars and Stripes - a collection of patriotic and popular American music. The lyrics sung are actually Sousa's original lyrics, altered slightly for this arrangement. Happy Memorial Day - may these colors never run.
