On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, students, faculty, and staff of the Institute of Therapy through the Arts, a division of the Music Institute of Chicago, came together to honor those who lost their lives and those who lost loved ones to the 9/11 tragedy and subsequent conflicts.  They visited the five campuses of the community music school to record a special arrangement of Bill Withers' "Lean on Me."
