BFCCPS performed the National Anthem

It was a pleasant surprise to hear that the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School chorus was announced to perform the national anthem for the New England Revolution soccer game on Saturday night.

My phone was handy so I managed to grab a long distance shot

and then tried to zoom in on the chorus

Well done, BFCCPS chorus!

PS - The Revolution played to 0-0 draw with DC United. The defense maintained their shutout streak (4 complete games) but the offense failed to score on multiple opportunities.

PS1 - as the picture indicates, Gillette Stadium had a few seats open. The attendance was 14,163 and somewhat normal for the Revs games. With free parking and reasonably prices tickets, this is a good way to get into Gillette Stadium and see some good soccer. You could likely bring a family of four for the about the same price as a single New England Patriots ticket.
