For the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks Associate Professor of Music Heather Buchman conducted a special concert for remembrance and healing at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Syracuse. The concert was organized by Syracuse-based theater director Victoria King who witnessed the attacks at close hand.

 

Buchman led a 50-voice volunteer chorus in a program that included works written for 9/11. She also performed an arrangement of a vocal duo by Brahms as an instrumental interlude. The program interspersed recollections and reflections from survivors of the attack and concluded with the hymn from Sibelius’ “Finlandia” with new lyrics appropriate to the occasion, written in part by Jay Williams ’54, the Walcott-Bartlett Professor of Religious Studies.
