Tucson Chamber Artists' professional choir and Tucson Symphony Orchestra combine to perform Mozart's beloved Requiem, which was performed all over the world on the one year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, including Centennial Hall, and a new oratorio of internationally acclaimed composer Stephen Paulus commissioned by Tucson Chamber Artists. Paulus's work draws from sacred and secular texts of various traditions and faiths, and is intended to further the healing of our country by engendering deeper appreciation and respect for our differences while recognizing that which we share in common: the need for hope and renewal in the face of grief and loss.

The concert is Sunday, September 11, at 3 p.m., UA Centennial Hall.

Radio broadcast Sunday, September 11, at 8 p.m on KUAT-FM.
