Sunday, Sept. 11, at Symphony Space

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, the New York Chamber Music Festival is holding a special Sunday concert, to be hosted by B. D. Wong.

The evening will include music and poetry, all addressing the events of 9/11, and including spoken tributes by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and Mario Cuomo.

This free concert, performed by musicians from the New York Philharmonic, is dedicated to the people of New York City.

Self’s good friend, composer Drew Hemenger, is one of the selected performers, and here’s how he explained the piece to be performed:

I am honored to be included in this program, which will feature the world premiere of the piano 4-hand version of Union Square, September 11, 2001, performed, by the internationally acclaimed piano duo Pascal Rogé and Ami Rogé.

Since this is a FREE event, there will be no tickets, but maximum seating capacity of Symphony Space is 750.  Lines are expected, so if you want a seat, getting there early will be essential.  It IS possible, however, to secure a reserved seat by mailing a $50 (tax-deductible) donation to the New York Chamber Music Festival and requesting one.  This cannot be done on-line.  Check must be mailed to:

New York Chamber Music Festival
c/o Elmira Darvarova
P. O. Box 231284
New York, NY 10023
You will receive a confirmation in writing, with a receipt, and your name will be on a security list for reserve advanced seating. Just to make sure, you should still come early!

Stay tuned (And self is praying for all her friends on the East Coast:  hopefully, Hurricane Irene will not do very much damage)
