German violinist plays America the Beautiful as he becomes a citizen

Sadly, we don’t have video, but reports say some were moved to tears by Augutin Hadelich’s performance yesterday at Manhattan Federal Court. Actually, it was the judge who said it“Augustin’s rendition was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes,” said U.S. Circuit Court Judge Robert Katzmann, who presided over the ceremony.

What did he play?

America the Beautiful, of course.

    • I agree. I’ve had the enjoyment of attending some of Mr. Hadelich’s concerts and he is indeed a very fine (and sometimes regrettably underrated) violinist.
