Olympic Anthem - Instrumental Version

The anthem which accompanies the raising and lowering of the Olympic flag, known as the Olympic Hymn, has been played for virtually all of the games since 1960 (via the International Olympic Committee). Previously every host country had its own unique music for these events, with the lyrics of today's anthem having only been heard at the 1896 Games. The language it is sung in has varied since its standardization, with most host countries presenting it in Greek, English, or their own language (though in some cases an instrumental version has been performed instead).

Olympic Anthem - Instrumental Version

The hymn has since been performed at every Olympic event, usually at both the opening and closing ceremonies. Each country can choose between the English version, the Greek version, or a translation of the original Greek version to any language, or even an instrumental version. Often, more than one versions are used at the same Olympiad. The hymn has been sung in Greek (either as the only version, or along with versions in other languages) at the 1976 Summer and Winter Olympics, at the 1980 Summer Olympics, at the 1988 Winter Olympics, at the 2000 Summer Olympics, at the 2004 Summer Olympics (in Athens), at the 2008 Summer Olympics and at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

It was an instrumental version of the national anthem; the words played only in her mind. As the notes usually accompanied by "o'er the land of the free" swelled, Berry closed her eyes. She bowed her head, swayed slightly on her feet and pushed her right fist into the air as the final notes played.

National anthems are also often played at large gatherings, particularly on public holidays. This act is used to create a sense of camaraderie at gatherings, and to display patriotism. Often this can be the cause of great controversy, e.g. the playing of "God Save The Queen' on Republic of Ireland soil at sporting occasions [1]. During the 2008 Olympics the US national anthem was cut at the end during Michael Phelps' medal award ceremony[2], afterwards instrumental versions of every country's national anthem were used.

Both teams went back to their locker rooms once the unofficial Black national anthem was finished. When the Raiders retook the field, they did so to some instrumental jazz that sounded like elevator music. Not hearing boos from the home crowd was weird but the music choice was weirder.

The national anthem was sung by the SCF Chamber Choir directed by Melodie Dickerson, SCF music program director. The processional and recessional were performed by the SCF Symphony Orchestra conducted by Dr. Robyn Bell, SCF director of instrumental studies. 041b061a72
