Musical Theatre seniors perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” for UArizona commencement ceremonies
Musical Theatre BFA seniors Camryn Elias, Jenna Meadows and Tony Moreno, all graduating from the School of Theatre, Film & Television, recorded a special version of the National Anthem which was shown at the University of Arizona’s in-person Commencement celebrations this month.
Their rendition was filmed at Old Main, the Alexander Berger Memorial Fountain, and the olive grove near Main Gate.
Staff from the College of Fine Arts, University Marketing & Communications and Presidential Events and University Ceremonies teams came together during a challenging time to help produce this inspirational performance. The filming was done outdoors, all production staff were masked, with limited takes in order to work within pandemic protocols.
