Sunday, September 11, 2011 marked the ten-year anniversary of 9/11. As a tribute to the victims of 9/11 and America, UTA Senior Jesus J. Martinez composed a performance titled “Threnody for 9/11 for Mixed Chamber Ensemble.” The threnody was to serve as a musical depiction and reenactment of the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Through the music, the audience will be able to hear and visualize the four plane crashes, the towers falling and feel the terrifying emotions that took place during the attacks.
Participants included members of the UTA Symphony Orchestra and the Arlington Boys and Girls Choir. The performance took place in the Irons Recital Hall.
