Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, September 11, 2011 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

This Sunday on CBC Radio 2, in collaboration with the National Arts Centre (NAC), you will hear a live to air broadcast of The 9/11 Concert of Hope and Remembrance , featuring the NAC Orchestra and the Christ Church Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys.

The hour-long concert is a gesture marking the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City, Washington and Pennsylvania. The broadcast will begin at 8:40 am (9:40 in the Maritimes, 10:10 in NFLD) and the first notes of music will begin at 8:46 a.m. to coincide with the time the first plane crashed into New York’s World Trade Center. The live to air event will be hosted by Peter Togni.

This broadcast will be followed by a special one hour edition of Choral Concert, heard in central and western Canada, that features the Studio Musique Ancienne de Montreal in a concert called “Tavener and Taverner”. It’s a collection of moving and soulful performances of works by the contemporary British composer John Tavener, and his distant cousin - the Renaisance master John Taverner. The two composers are separated by 400 years but connected by many musical similarities.
