Music for the anniversary of 9/11. (Subject to schedule change)

A program of music commemorating the anniversary of September 11, 2001 features an in-studio perormance by members of the The Roches, the trio of singing sisters known for their exquisite fusion of influences including church choir music, traditional Irish folk, contemporary folk, doowop, country, and pop. Jerome Kitzke's music celebrates American vitality in its purest forms, drawing upon the spirit of jazz, plains Indian song, and Beat Generation poetry. His talent for the dramatic and visceral is evident in a new piece commemorating Sept. 11. And poet/spoken-word performer Carl Hancock Rux, always known for his thrilling, provocative live performances, will be heard in his 2001 piece, Lamentations.
