Obama’s Inauguration Music


I was really moved listening to President Barack Obama’s inauguration speech. To watch a video of his entire speech click here. There were also heaps of amazing musical items presented throughout the ten days of celebration, what’s a celebration without music?! Here are two items from the inauguration ceremony…

The legendary Aretha Franklin sings “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee“, the tune of which is based upon the British National Anthem “God Save the Queen“.

An amazing international quartet comprised of the French born Chinese cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the Israeli American violinist Itzhak Perlman, the African American clarinettist Anthony McGill and the Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero, performing the song “Air and Simple Gifts” by the American composer John Williams.
