Music on the 9/11 anniversary

by Jason Lee Oakes

“Nearly every ceremony will be smaller this year, even at the epicenter of the attacks…Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has stripped the New York ceremony of its presidents, governors and other politicians, who have in the past read literary or religious passages. Instead of Yo-Yo Ma, James Taylor and Paul Simon, bagpipers and a youth chorus will provide the music.” (New York Times)
