Weinberg Center "Mighty Wurlitzer" video approaches 100,000 views on YouTube

A few years ago, the folks at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in downtown Frederick, MD invited us to do something quite unique.

We set up a camera to capture one of them in action.

Historic illustrations and modern animation come together to promote author and anthem

Frederick prepares to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the writing of the "Star-Spangled Banner" by Francis Scott Key in September 2014.   In preparation, the original song lyric manuscript was on display in Frederick June 14-15th, 2013.  The two day event, "Anthem and Author Reunited" brought the manuscript together with its author for the first time since Francis Scott Key handed the song lyrics to his brother-in-law in 1814.
