Marking the 200th anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner," the Monaco Boys’ Choir (Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco) gave a concert July 15 in the National Museum of American History’s Flag Hall. A private reception, hosted by Ambassador Maguy Maccario Doyle of Monaco and museum director John Gray, followed. Now in its 40th year, the choir under the direction of Pierre Debat was on a U.S. tour from New York to Miami. The ambassador said, “It is always very exciting when our cultural emissaries come to town.” The 30-member group, ranging from 8 to 18 years of age, also sang at the French Embassy on Bastille Day and at the Children’s National Health Center.
