Great Performances: John Williams Conducts His New Arrangement Of The Star-Spangled Banner


I have shared two other versions of The Star-Spangled Banner on my blog before by the combined Academy Choirs from the four branches of the U.S. Armed Services along with the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets, and the stirring rendition by pop singer Whitney Houston.


This new version is equally as stirring, yet faithful to the original. It was arranged and conducted by legendary film composer John Williams yesterday, July 4th, 2014 at the National Independence Day Celebration in Washington, D.C. Williams also incorporated service choirs and the herald trumpets for his arrangement, but his harmonic embellishments and dramatic portrayal are practically trademark Williams.


It is my hope that this performance stays on YouTube, but if it is pulled down, I hope to find another performance of it soon, as I'm sure it will find its place among great versions of our National Anthem.
