SLSO Songs of America | "Anchors Aweigh"
Seeded by slso on 8 Aug 2020
Author: St. Louis Symphony Orchestra
The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra continues its exploration of American voices in music with this performance of "Anchors Aweigh," the official march song of the U.S. Navy, in celebration of the commissioning of USS ST LOUIS (LCS-19) on August 8, 2020. This is the seventh installment in the SLSO's Songs of America series. The Freedom-class littoral combat ship’s sponsor, Barbara Broadhurst Taylor, has deep ties to the military—her father and father-in-law both served—and the Taylor family have been longtime supporters of the SLSO, along with many other St. Louis institutions.
