From Daniel J. Wakin comes the New York Philharmonic's announcement for a special memorial concert in remembrance of September 11, 2001. This year's memorial will mark the 10th anniversary of the traumatic terror attack on the World Trade Center and the NYPhil is the first of NYC's cultural orgs to make an announcement.
A free performance of Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony will be held at Avery Fisher Hall with soprano Dorothea Röschmann and mezzo Michelle DeYoung. The September 10th evening concert will be broadcast on the radio and on screens in Lincoln Center Plaza.
We only hope that seats will first go to those who were involved directly in the aftermath of the trauma of September 11.
