Keystone State Boychoir in Prague

Keystone State Boychoir celebrated Independence Day a bit early by singing the national anthem at the residence of the US Ambassador to the Czech Republic on June 28 as part of an event organized by Chargé d’Affaires Kelly Adams-Smith. Singers then enjoyed an all-American meal (Starbucks!, KFC! Burger King!) and mingling with a diverse group of guests including diplomats and generals.

On this Independence Day, we are proud of these 59 young men for representing our city, state and nation, and for bringing people together through song.

Happy Independence Day
