National Museum of American History Showcase: Washington, DC
The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History (1400 Constitution Avenue Northwest Washington, DC) will present a special performance of Civil War-era sheet music from the recently acquired BMI Archives Confederate Music Collection in its annual commemoration of Flag Day. BMI member and “Face the Nation” moderator Bob Schieffer, and Honky Tonk Confidential, a D.C.-based country and western band, will perform. The performance follows a donation ceremony in front of the gallery that holds the Star-Spangled Banner during which the museum will formally accept the donation from Broadcast Music Inc.
