Your songs needed for 9/11 Memorial concert!
In the Berklee tradition of caring for others (Concert for Haiti and Darfur CD Project) and giving to worthwhile charitable organizations, I am proposing a 9/11 Memorial Concert to be held at the Berklee Performance Center on Sunday, September 11, 2011.
In order to bring this project to fruition, I am reaching out to all Berklee clubs and departments to ask your interest and assistance with this project.
All net proceeds of the one night Memorial Concert will be donated to 9/11 charities. In addition, I propose a production of a CD of the original songs selected and a DVD of the concert itself. Once again, a designated percentage of the net proceeds of the sale of the CD and DVD will be donated to 9/11 charities of Berklees’ choosing.
The initial step for this project to become a reality is to seek Berklee students’ talents to create 12 to 15 songs/compositions to pay tribute to all of those lives that were forever changed by the events of 9/11. Songs of remembrance for those lost, songs of celebration and joy for the lives saved, songs of courage for those who gave their lives to save others and songs of determination of a people that will not be made to live in fear, are all welcomed.
Submission of songs/compositions of those that wish to participate will be from January 18th thru midnight of February 14th. A panel of Berklee students and faculty will announce the final selections on March 1st. Further details regarding the submission process will be provided after Winter break.
If you have any questions or comments regarding this project please contact Alexander Arntzen at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
