August 10 marks the 170th anniversary of the founding of the Smithsonian Institution. Take a moment to enjoy a musical interlude with Secretary Skorton and John Hasse, curator of the music collection at the American History Museum, and feel free to sing along as we wish our venerable Institution Many Happy Returns!
(No cake. That many candles would present a fire hazard.)
