This weekend, a series of free concerts will be given throughout New York City, in memory of the fallen of 9/11.
The Schiller Institute’s New York Community Chorus will participate with many other area singers and instrumentalists in a concert of Sacred Music – including a complete performance of the Requiem of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – as a living memorial to all victims of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, and the wars and terror that followed.
The performances are sponsored by the Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture. Its founder, Lynn J. Yen, summarized them as follows: “this September, let Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart speak in the language of music to our hearts, and to what Abraham Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature.’”
The Requiem will be performed in a spectacular fashion.
It will include a 42-member orchestra, a 100-person chorus and four soloists – Indira Mahajan, soprano; Mary Phillips, mezzo-soprano; Everett Suttle, tenor; Philip Cutlip, baritone.
The entire company will be directed by the world-famous conductor, John Sigerson.
A unique aspect of all the performances is that they will be done at the scientific tuning of A=432 Hz, which was specified by composer Giuseppe Verdi for all classical music compositions.
