Independence Day Celebration
The Fireworks and Festivities event returns to Thomasville courtesy of CNS, who has held the event for over 20 years. On Independence Day, friends and families will come together in the city’s green space to visit and celebrate with red, white, and blue flare. You can picnic and chow down on dishes provided by local food vendors, and music will fill the air as the Michael Miller Band takes the stage. There will be plenty of fun, games, and crafts for the kids as well.
The Star-Spangled Banner
The lyrics to our national anthem were pinned by Francis Scott Key upon witnessing the U.S. flag waving through the chaos of the Battle of Baltimore. A relative noticed that the lyrics fit remarkably well to the tune of a contemporary number, “The Anacreontic Song.” At the time, that song was popularized by Britain’s Anacreontic Society, a social club of amateur musicians. Given the club was centered around making melodies, the tune demands a noticeably difficult vocal range. If the song had been written today, what sort of melody do you think Americans would have chosen?
