General Announcements

Concert to mark 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 terrorist attacks

A chamber music concert at 3 p.m. on Sept. 11 at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, 1347 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis will mark the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

During the concert, pianist Robert Cassidy, cellist Ida Mercer and violinist Cara Tweed—who together make up the Cleveland-based Almeda Trio—will be joined by clarinetist David Gresham, a member of the music faculty at Illinois State University in Normal, Ill., in a performance of French composer Olivier Messiaen’s “Quatuor pour la Fin du Temps” (“Quartet for the End of Time”).

Messiaen, who died in 1992, composed the work while he was held captive in a German prisoner of war camp during World War II.

The work, which was inspired by the New Testament’s Book of Revelation, was premiered there in 1942.

Prior to the performance, Gresham, who was a witness to the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York in 2001, will give an audio-visual presentation to introduce the quartet to the audience.

The concert is free and open to the public. Freewill offerings will be accepted.
