Inauguration Day national anthem rendition special to conservatory alumnus
University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music alumnus Adam Green ’16 performed the national anthem at the Golden State Warriors game in San Francisco on Inauguration Day (Jan. 20).
Green teaches music at Skyline High School in Oakland.
“I was honored to see such diverse representation during the inauguration … As a young Black male, to represent us on that platform is humbling, when we are such a small percentage of the teaching force,” Green said on the Oakland Unified School District web site.
He added on his Facebook page: “I always hope to use my voice in a way that uplifts the many people and identities I represent. Whether it's me trying to teach my students to the best of my abilities or actually on a stage singing, may my light shine, encourage, inspire, and motivate others.”
