The September Concert

Please join us for our 2nd September Concert commemorating those lost on September 11, 2001. For a decade, the worldwide September Concerts have been presented to celebrate peace and humanity through music. The Walters features Ensemble Datura, a quartet renowned for melding traditional and contemporary melodies rooted in India, Turkey and Brazil as well as African and Arabic cultures.

From WYPR radio's "The Signal"

South Indian Carnatic singer K S Resmi joins us to share her incredible story, and her equally incredible voice. Press play below to hear the radio broadcast.

For ten years, the worldwide September Concerts have been striving to help people find meaningful ways to mark 9/11 as the day when seeds for peace were first planted. This event precedes the Renée May talk beginning at 2 p.m.
