On May 8, for the 5th year in a row, HNU’s Preparatory Music Department played “The Star-Spangled Banner” to open an Oakland A’s game at the Coliseum.
Katherine Baird, the Preparatory Music Program Director, organizes the experience and says, “It’s a difficult piece for our young student musicians to learn and play. We had to audition before the first performance five years ago to be considered, but we keep doing an amazing job and have been invited back every year since.” she continues, “The event is a great fundraiser, and a great way to get out into the community. Plus it’s so exciting for the kids to play on the field.”
