“It began more than 25 years ago and has become a long-standing tradition ever since. I couldn’t imagine the conference without it
“The National Anthem and chants of “USA, USA” this year were simply breathtaking.
“There were no politics – it was just unifying and truly patriotic.”
The Kentucky Music Educator’s Association has been doing the “Star-Spangled Banner” tradition at the Hyatt Regency for the numerous years.
During their three day stay the choir repeat the performance at the end of each day.
Guests staying at the hotel all take to the balconies at 11 p.m., to hear the spine-tingling choir in action.

Garrett Mager, a traveler from Frankfort, was staying at the hotel and also captured their performance on video.
“I was sleeping in my room and then all of sudden I’m woken up by this racket and a bunch of kids,” Mager said.
“I went outside on the balcony and asked them what they were doing and they said they were getting ready to sing the national anthem. So I watched and it was incredible.”
