This fast paced, pop-style medley is a break from patriotic tradition. Opening grandly into a contemporary work with “This Is My Country,” this choral develops into “America, the Beautiful,” then grows into a gospel-style setting of “My Country, 'Tis of Thee” and ends as it began with “This Is My Country.” It remains up-beat and powerful until the very last chord. “A Star Spangled Celebration!” is a choreographer's dream of movement and energy, and a wonderful addition to festival programming. Available separately: SATB, SSA, SAB, StudioTrax CD.
