America the Beautiful by Katherine Lee Bates (lyrics, 1893, revised in 1904 and 1913) and Samuel A. Ward (music, "Materna", 1882), arr. by Mike Tomaro; In 1893, at the age of thirty-three, Bates, an English professor at Wellesley College, had taken a train trip to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to teach a short summer school session at Colorado College. Several of the sights on her trip inspired her, and they found their way into a poem --- the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the "White City" with its promise of the future contained within its alabaster buildings; the wheat fields of America's heartland Kansas; and the majestic view of the Great Plains from high atop Pikes Peak. Her poem, "Pikes Peak," was first published in the Fourth of July edition of the church periodical The Congregationalist in 1895. It was retitled "America the Beautiful" when published in 1910 with Ward's music.

Around 700 people were in the audience at Central Park. The band wore tan slacks or shorts and the new summer shirts. Because the temperature was in the 80's, the shirts were much more comfortable than our previous thicker all-cotton shirts.
