Where is the National Anthem Coming From?

I love mysteries like this – for the past week or so I’ve been getting numerous tweets and emails from Adams Morgan, Woodley Park and now Glover Park asking:

“Wondering if anyone else heard the national anthem this morning. I walked out of my building (in Glover Park, a few buildings north of the Russian Embassy) at 8am, and distinctly heard the Star Spangled Banner. It wasn’t very quiet. Not sure if it was coming from the Russian embassy, but it sounded like it was coming from that direction.”

Has anyone else heard it (if so what neighborhood?) and have you been able to pinpoint the origin?
