The Heard County High School Chorus will be singing our National Anthem at the Atlanta Braves Game on Monday, August 13,2012!
The unique opportunity came about after one of the chorus parents, Diana Callahan (mother of Jordan Callahan) asked chorus director Nancy Heard if she could video the anthem by the chorus and submit it to the Braves.
According to Heard, the Braves are very picky about who they select to sing the anthem. In fact she stated that upon arrival at the stadium that day the students must perform a practice anthem prior to the actual game anthem and they could actually even be pulled if not up to Brave standards.
The chorus originally learned the anthem this past school year and performed it at several Heard County athletic events during the winter and spring including the highly attended home playoff games for the Lady Braves basketball team.
