Mozart’s Requiem Rolls Across America, Marking 10th Anniversary of 9/11

LISTEN
Mozart’s Requiem was first commissioned in 1791 by a man wanting to commemorate the anniversary of his wife’s death. Over the centuries it has become a haunting and moving tribute to the departed, and on the first anniversary of 9/11 in 2002, choruses around the world performed the piece, rolling from time zone to time zone. And to mark the 10th anniversary, The Santa Barbara Choral Society has organized a U.S. version, wherein over 60 choruses will perform the enigmatic piece at 3pm local time, rolling from New England to Hawaii. Santa Barbara’s free concert will take place at the First Presbyterian Church, and KDB Radio will broadcast the event later in the evening at 9pm.
