National Fall Sing - Remembering 9/11
National Memorial Concert - Remembering 9/11
The National Memorial Concert offers the opportunity for choirs to achieve a new level of accomplishment. It allows directors and programs to distinguish themselves as a top program.
This year's program will feature honor choirs, under the direction of world-renowned choral directors. Survivors and first responders from the events of September 11, 2001 will address the audience as well. Their words will remind us of loss, courage, unity, and strength.
In addition to participating in the National Memorial Concert, student performers will have the opportunity to spend time in New York City, visiting historic sites and being immersed in the cultural experience that New York offers.
Other activities include a Broadway show, visiting Central Park, a dinner cruise on the Hudson river, Times Square, One World Observatory at the World Trade Center's Freedom Tower, the 9/11 Museum, St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Statue of Liberty, Chinatown, and the Metropolitan Art Museum.
Built in 1891, Carnegie Hall showcases the greatest of musical talent and has been an aspirational destination for the world's finest artists.
