Whether you love the timeless devotion of Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America,” Woody Guthrie’s common-man response “This Land Is Your Land” or any of a hundred other patriotic favorites, chances are there’s a song that speaks to your own feelings for America. A Celebration of America gives audiences a portrait of the United States in music, including the opportunity to hear the rarely sung additional verses to “The Star-Spangled Banner”; an early contender for the title of national anthem, “Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean”; classics like “Home on the Range” and “Yankee Doodle Boy”; musical tributes to all branches of the Armed Services; and several enduring favorites by America’s greatest composer of patriotic songs, the immigrant Irving Berlin.
A Celebration of America makes for the perfect addition to a Memorial Day, Independence Day or Veterans Day event, or to any gathering where love of country is celebrated. Contact Cece to arrange your own Celebration of America performance. Note that both in-person and virtual bookings are being accepted for this program through December 2022.
