We mark the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a special Saturday Classical Coffeehouse program for reflection, remembrance, and healing, hosted by Mike Bolton.

Tune in from 6 AM to 12 PM to hear selections from Verdi's Requiem and Brahms's A German Requiem, Faure's Pavane, and meditative choral works by Mason Bates and John Tavener as we honor all who were lost on that tragic day.

Additionally, on Friday, September 10th at 1:30 PM, our weekly Choral Connection features a stirring performance of Robert Moran’s Trinity Requiem, written for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in 2011, in a performance by the Orchestra and Choir of Trinity Church Wall Street.

On the jazz side, starting at 6 PM on Saturday evening’s Jukebox Jazz, Bobbi Booker presents jazz versions of the music that helped heal the nation after the attacks 20 years ago.

The music will honor the lives lost in New York City, Washington D.C. and Shanksville, PA. Tune in for an evening of reflection featuring songs like "New York State of Mind," "Wake Me Up When September Ends” and "A Day In the Life."
