    9/11 Memorial Concert: the Real America in Music

    The Schiller Institute NYC Chorus is returning to historic Arthur Avenue in the Bronx on September 15, 2024, to present The Real America, from Brahms to Burleigh.

    American music is very much what adventurous spirits brought to these shores from around the world in a musical dialogue of cultures from around the world, from African-American rhythms, European melodies, patriotic as well as indigenous and sentimental themes, and beyond. It all came together in the traditional music of America.

    The epitome of this was the period of Antonín Dvořák’s term as director of Jeanette Thurber’s American Conservatory of Music in NYC in the 1890s. Join us as we explore the music of Brahms, Dvořák, H.T. Burleigh, Hall Johnson, Verdi and more.

    As we remember the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the event that launched the forever wars of the past quarter century which are now reaching an ominous crescendo, let us continue the dialogue of cultures that brings the world together.

    Tickets are now available here with Early Bird discounts.
