UMSO & UM Concert Choir: Remembering September 11 - Sunday, September 11th, 2011

UMD School of Music presents: Remembering September 11 UMD Symphony Orchestra & UMD Concert Choir Edward Maclary, conductor

Sunday, September 11, 2011 7:30 pm - Dekelboum Concert Hall

In a production entitled Remembering September 11, UMD students and faculty commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 in a performance of Mozart's Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626). This work, Mozart's last before his tragically early death, summons momentous events of loss and remembrance of the departed. "It's an unfinished masterpiece that evokes the tragedy of loss," says conductor Edward Maclary. "What more appropriate memorial for September 11?"
