Memorial Day Concert

Last May 27, 2013 in New York City, St. Paul’s Chapel—the historic site in the shadow of the World Trade Center that served as a refuge for rescue workers after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001—hosted a Memorial Day concert by the UC Chamber Chorus, including works by Bach, Hindemith, and Tavener. The  highlight of the program was “Ashes,” composed by Chamber Chorus alum Trevor Weston, M.A. ’91, Ph.D. ’97, in response to the 9/11 tragedy. Trevor himself, now chair of the music department of Drew University in New Jersey was in the audience.
