The Green-Wood Cemetary presents Memory Ground on Saturday, September 11th. Memory Ground is a musical tribute to the souls lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. There will be performances at 12pm, 1pm, and 2pm. Each performance is 45 minutes.
Music is a powerful source of comfort. In emotionally fraught times, it can bring us calm and peace, if only for a few moments. On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, join us atop Green-Wood’s Battle Hill, with its sweeping views of Lower Manhattan, to remember the lives lost and those forever changed by this tragic day. The afternoon will feature original compositions by the Mississippi-born and NYC-based composer Buck McDaniel and performances by saxophonist Noa Even and the Desdemona Ensemble.
Reservations are strongly recommended. The cemetary recommends a $10 donation per reservation so that they can continue to offer free and low-cost programs throughout the year.
Other important things to note before attending: Seating is on a first come first served basis regardless of reservation. A limited number of chairs will be available. You are strongly encouraged to bring your own chairs or blankets. Each performance is 45 minutes in length, and will repeat every hour (12:00pm, 1:00pm, and 2:00pm). Battle Hill is a ten-minute walk from the Cemetery’s Main Entrance at 25th Street and Fifth Avenue, over hilly and uneven terrain (follow the signs to the performance site). Comfortable footwear is recommended.
