In honor of the adoption of the Star Spangled Banner as the US National Anthem on March 3, 1931 Gabe Stone, Stephen Christoff and Steve Ruckle present a performance of American patriotic music on modern and early brass instruments.  Francis Scott Key composed the lyrics to "The Star Spangled Banner" on September 14, 1814 and throughout the 19th century his words, set to a popular English song, were considered our national anthem. It wasn't formally designated as such until President Wilson signed an executive order in 1916 and that presidential order wasn't confirmed until congress acted and President Hoover signed it into law in 1931. (1 hour)
