Cantigas to Perform Official Translation of US National Anthem in Spanish

On Saturday, September 29, 2012, Cantigas will proudly perform what is believed to be the premiere of Clotilde Arias' translation of the national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner” in Spanish, at 2:00pm, at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. The Smithsonian commissioned Cantigas's performance and recording of the song for its new exhibition "Not Lost in Translation: The Life of Clotilde Arias," a biographical look at the Peruvian-born composer, copywriter, translator and citizen’s contributions to U.S. history. See the American History Museum event for more details.
