“Where were you on the day that America stood still?”
In the midst of the shock, horror and tragedy…
did you also hear ‘voices of courage’ that day?
Ten years later, on 9-11-2011, their stories call us to be ‘voices of courage’ here in our own community, to carry forward their love, faith, hope and light into the next decade and beyond.
Join us on September 10th and 11th to hear these “Voices of Courage”
• through stories…
From Naples and New York, and the pastor who embodied his faith in downtown Manhattan on 9/11 and the days following; from Havana to Cape Coral, and the vision of one family’s freedom journey starting on 9/11; from Canada and the town of 10,000 that sheltered nearly 7,000 airborne 9/11 ‘refugees'; from Atlanta to Naples, and the September 11th birthday gift from daughter to father; from Washington to the world, and the gift of compassionate vision for September 12th and beyond.
• through music…
With the Choir Project’s Lumina vocal ensemble singing scores by living composers from the U.S., Spain and Norway, including a newly commissioned score from New York-based Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo dedicated ‘to those who were voices of courage on Sept. 11, 2001 in America and on July 22, 2011 in Norway.’ And with Naples guest singer/songwriter Tim McGeary, who was also part of the Southwest Florida Disaster Medical Assistance Team that worked at Ground Zero in NYC. And, as is traditional at Choir Project concerts, you will join us in singing, too, including a new text written specifically for 9-11-2011.
• and through readings…
By 9-11 first responders, living poets, and other visionaries of our day.
Bring your voice of courage. Join us on September 10th and 11th!
