"We come back to remember the valor of those we lost - those who innocently went to work that day and the brave souls who went in after them. We have also come to be ever mindful of the courage of those who grieve for them, and the light that still lives in their hearts."
-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani
"Words cannot express how moved I am and how much of a life changing experience that was provided to me and my students over the last 4 days. The kids learned so much from the experience... it really made me personally feel like I actually know what I am doing as a director and as a professional musician. Our kids cannot stop talking about the show, the trip, the concert, meeting Sgt. Rose, and the whole experience."
