2009: September 11th Memorial Sing

BAC Folk Arts presents its annual September 11th Memorial project, which this year features performances of original songs about the events of September 11th and its aftermath. A selection of songs submitted through our open call will be performed live for the public on the anniversary from 5 - 7:30pm.

Every year since 2005, BAC Folk Arts has presented an annual September 11th memorial project. Past projects include film screenings, symposia and photo exhibitions all demonstrating the way New York artists, and especially Brooklyn artists, respond to and memorialize September 11th.
