Martha Mier offers stirring renditions of six of America's favorite patriotic songs that will encourage intermediate pianists to musically celebrate their love of country. The arrangements are appropriate for sharing at home, school, recitals, and with friends. Uplifting introductions and dramatic endings beautifully bookend the enduring simplicity and beauty of melodies. The history and spirit of America is reflected in each, ranging from the national anthem to the Broadway tune "You're a Grand Old Flag." The proud words of these great songs are also included. "America," "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and "Star Spangled Banner" are Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selections.
