Jessie Montgomery: Banner

This exciting work is a rhapsody on “The Star Spangled Banner” that interweaves other national anthems and songs within it. In order to take students from the “known” or something familiar to the “unknown” or something unfamiliar, these lessons provide three national anthem songs as “hooks” to help focus students’ listening experience for Banner–and to highlight the composer’s message that America is multicultural, made of people from other nations and cultural groups.
