as we approach september 11, there are many events being planned across new york city.
participating for the third year in a row, the brooklyn public library has designed another inspired program:
Once upon a time members of the Catholic, Muslim, and Jewish faiths lived peacefully with one another. They borrowed from and enriched one another's intellectual and cultural traditions. In retrospect, fifteenth-century Spain seems idyllic in this respect. That is why we have chosen to present a concert of music from this period as Brooklyn Public Library's way of commemorating the fifth anniversary of 9/11. The concert, presented by critically acclaimed guitarist Gerard Edery, accompanied by Christian Puig, will take place on Sunday afternoon, September 10 at 2:00 PM.there are also events across multiple buroughs of new york city sponsored by september eleventh families for peaceful tomorrows.
