One of the largest known commemorations of September 11 in the nation, the free concert will be held on September 7, 2014 at the Sheldon Concert Hall, 3648 Washington Blvd, at 5:30 pm. With the goal of promoting a more harmonious St. Louis, the concert brings together people of all faiths and ethnicities, encourages respect and understanding, and bridges divides through a shared musical arts experience.

World-renowned soprano Christine Brewer and members of the St. Louis Symphony will premiere a new work by jazz pianist and composer Peter Martin that was commissioned for the concert. 

Dr. David Greenhaw, President of Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves, will deliver the keynote address.

We are pleased to announce the addition of acclaimed jazz vocalist Denise Thimes to our concert line-up! The concert will also feature a wide range of musical performances by faith groups, including Greek Orthodox combined choirs, Muslim-Bosnian and Hindu ensembles, Rabbi Amy Feder of Temple Israel, and a gospel choir. Students from Rosati-Kain and Normandy high schools; a Mormon youth chorus; a Baha’i ensemble; and Chief Scott Bighorse and singers of the Osage Nation will also perform.
