Lightning, thunder and torrents of rain did not dampen the spirits of Flagler Museum members and their guests during the annual Independence Day celebration. This year’s festivities included the Women of Note singing patriotic songs, the presentation of the colors by the Palm Beach Police Honor Guard and the reading of the Declaration of Independence.
The Women of Note entertained several hundred museum members and guests with “America the Beautiful,” “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor” and “Over The Rainbow.” The award-winning quartet, Sunsation lit up the room, singing “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” and selections from Yankee Doodle Dandy.
Honoring the courageous men and women who dedicate their lives to preserving our freedom, the Women of Note Chorus ended the program with “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Following the ceremony, museum guests enjoyed dazzling Fourth of July fireworks displays on the Intracoastal Waterway, intermittently upstaged by bursts of lightning.
The Women of Note Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a nonprofit music education association for women. The group captivates audiences with four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop style.
The chorus holds open rehearsals and welcomes any woman who loves to sing and wants to have fun while making new friends. For more information, visit www.womenofnote.com or call (877) 966-7464.
