August 10. 2018 1:48PM




Living on her family’s farm in 1814 Vermont, the war seems far away to young Violet Howard. As the war draws nearer so does a song that would later be of great importance, penned first as a poem during a nearby naval battle in Baltimore, Maryland. As Violet learns the words of this patriotic song, she doesn’t know that those words will one day become her country’s national anthem.  "Beautiful Music" tells the story of how a little tune, written in the midst of battle, became the greatest song in America.
