Indiana University Remembers 9/11

IU Auditorium, 5 p.m.

Indiana University Bloomington will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a service of remembrance featuring musicians from the Jacobs School of Music. The Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" and "Adagietto" from Mahler's Symphony No. 5. Soprano Heidi Grant Murphy and pianist Kevin Murphy, IU graduates whose careers have flourished internationally and who are new members of the Jacobs School of Music faculty, will perform. A vocal ensemble from the Jacobs School of Music will also perform. Speakers will include IU President Michael McRobbie, Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan, President of the Metropolitan Professional Firefighters Local 586 Robert Loviscek, and Kevin Bush, a current member of the IU football team whose four years of service with the U.S. Army included tours of duty in Korea and Iraq with the 101st Airborne Infantry. A beam from the World Trade Center, which will become part of a permanent 9/11 memorial in the city of Bloomington, will be on display outside the Auditorium. This event will take place on the IU Auditorium steps, weather permitting.
