THE SEPTEMBER CONCERT FOR 9/11
"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
Begun in 2002, The September Concert is the free citywide concert series that seeks each year to respond to the attacks of 9/11 by filling the skies with music.
Annually, The September Concert, a non-profit organization, commemorates the horror visited upon NYC on September 11, 2001 by placing free music from every genre from classical to hip-hop in park spaces, shops, cafes, office buildings, clubs and restaurants across NY's five boroughs-utilizing the full healing properties of music both to honor those we've lost and to celebrate life and our shared humanity. In six years, TSC has grown from a few hundred performers in a few venues in NYC, to over 3,400 artists performing in over 250 locales worldwide, attracting greater recognition with each year.
TSC's jazz component, The Heart of Jazz, was added in 2005. In its first two years, The Heart of Jazz has allowed scores of top jazz musicians to come together as a community to express that most horrid of days in the way that makes sense to us-through the music.
Initially, The Heart of Jazz was held in a restaurant on Columbus Avenue which volunteered to host an event. For 2007, this jazz component expands greatly, offering the healing nature of this great music in FIVE VENUES across Manhattan. We are coordinating our jazz effort to maximize the impact of each of these efforts. This will help accommodate the growing number of artists wishing to express themselves about the day and its aftermath, as well as the audience seeking to hear those messages.

The sweet sounds of resistance-a glorious ensemble of voices; choristers, soloists, activists singing in several languages. Their repertoire touches issues of peace and war, class, racial justice, prison, labor struggles and the environment. The music draws from the traditions of Latin American, Jewish, and African music, as well as the Blues, Spirituals, and other songs in English, and has all been arranged with great sensitivity and exciting freshness for a cappella voices by conductor Gene Glickman. The performers' commitment to the various issues contributes to the urgency and intensity of the many different emotions in the singing of these songs for an unsettled world.
We hope you have the opportunity to pass by some of these marvelous musicians listed here. Or any of the over 3,500 artists who will be playing all over the city on Tuesday.
Hopefully, a few bars that we may play may touch your heart and help heal some small territory there.
We remember and mourn still those close to us who perished that fateful day.
We also look forward, seeking to embrace peace for our future.
