    More than 100 members of the Berklee College of Music community will share original songs, compositions, poetry, dance, and stories in a multi-media event designed to offer unity, hope, and inspiration on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. The 9/11 Berklee Memorial Concert takes place Sunday, September 11, at 7:30 p.m. at the Berklee Performance Center, 136 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston. Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 the night of the show at the Berklee Performance Center box office or online at berkleebpc.com. For information call 617-747-2261. The 9/11 Berklee Memorial Concert features classical, rap, jazz, electronic, and gospel music, some of it written especially for the show. Student, faculty, and alumni performers span generations and cultures, portraying a global response to the anniversary. Among featured groups are a cappella group Pitch Slapped, the Berklee Hip Hop Alliance, and the Berklee Slam Poetry Team. A Marine Color Guard will open the show. Eyewitness Larry Rader and survivor Yaeno White will share their stories about life in New York before and after September 11 in exclusive videos. Rader, a photographer who lived and worked in Lower Manhattan, will share images rarely seen by the public of New York before and after the attack. White, the assistant vice president of Fuji Bank in the South Tower, was left legally blind by the attacks, but has found new purpose as an artist. Between performances, Berklee staff will read from news reports and written accounts of Flight 93, the heroic duties of New York firefighters, and the American spirit in the face of an unprecedented event. Composers, songwriters, poets, and dancers include Shai Littlejohn, Ricky Valadez, Aaron Gage, Gizem Gokoglu, Scott Kapelman, Utako Toyama, Sarah Mount, Juan Carlos Enriquez, Carla Martinez, Avena Savage, Mike Bono, Jimmy Kachulis, Alex Mack, Wikus Van Der Hoven, Clifton Williams, Pablo Gomez Trujillo, and Javon Flax. Alexander Arntzen, a film scoring and composition major and president of Berklee’s Film Scoring Network, is producing the 9/11 Berklee Memorial Concert. “Even though I’m from Los Angles, 9/11 was not just a tragedy for New York or for the United States, but rather a global tragedy that changed all of our lives. This concert is about the international society at Berklee reaching out to our community through multiple musical styles and visual mediums to express lingering impressions. By the end of the concert, there will be a feeling of catharsis."
