WFMT 98.7 FM observes the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with Flags From Ashes, music and text conceived as a memorial for Sept. 11, 2001.
WFMT asked Latin American composer, Elbio Barilari to create a special work for radio broadcast to observe this day of peace and remembrance. I was invited to perform in Elbio’s group assembled for this project, recorded Wednesday, August 24 in the WFMT sound studio.
The broadcast includes text by Spanish novelist and journalist, Antonio Munoz Molina, read by WFMT’s Peter Whorf, and excerpts from Dirge For Two Veterans, by Walt Whitman, sang in English by Amy Conn and spoken by Elbio Barilari, in Spanish.
