Banner is a tribute to the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key, which was officially declared the American National Anthem in 1814. It is scored for solo string quartet and string orchestra. The excerpt displays Jessie’s incredible facility in interweaving echoes from America’s musical heritage with her own contemporary voice. In this way, Jessie is a natural fit to the American Notes theme and Orpheus.
