WQXR and WNYC want to enhance the spirit of 9/11's Ten Anniversary. For the past several weeks, we've asked listeners to propose music that evokes the occasion. We've compiled works spanning many genres -- everything from Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Notorious B.I.G., to Bach, Ravel and Vaughan Williams -- in a special 24/7 audio stream. You can also hear the stories behind listeners' selections in their own words. Find the entire playlist here.
This commemorative installation for the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001 when thousands of lives were lost and the landscape of New York City was changed forever speaks to the unwavering spirit of the City. Adams wanted to create a collage for all New Yorkers to experience a small healing reminder of our strength and resilience. Adams chose variations on the colors red, white and blue to speak to our unity as a nation. We asked New Yorkers to send us images and words of hope. We Will Rise is the outcome.
