On Sunday, September 11, 2011, the Brooklyn-Queens Conservatory of Music will lead a musical, interfaith "Day of Rememberance" commemorating those lost on September 11, 2001 in collaboration with Congregation Beth Elohim, the Park Slope Community Bookstore, Brooklyn Art Song Society, BaroQue Across the River, and Dancewave.

“There is a natural relationship between the arts and expression, and music often provides a positive outlet for emotions not otherwise expressed,” says Karen Geer, Executive Director of the Conservatory. “It is our hope that through this event, we will be able to provide the community with an open and meaningful platform for expression through music, as well as words, silence or other art forms.”

“The human capacity to make music has, for centuries, offered comfort, consolation and hope in troubled times,” says Andy Bachman, Senior Rabbi at CBE.  “It is our fervent prayer that this service of music and remembrance will give heartfelt honor and meaning to the inspiring lives of those we remember and commemorate on this day in the life of our nation.”
