Lake Harriet 9/11 concert needs volunteers

The third annual Our Community Remembers memorial concert is coming up on Saturday, Sept. 11 at the Lake Harriet bandshell, and organizers are looking for volunteers.

The concert commemorates those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

Organizers are looking for musicians, singers and writers, as well as people to help produce the event.

Dr. Jeffrey Stirling, conductor of the Linden Hills Chamber Orchestra, will lead this year’s concert along with Janice Hunton, head of the music department at the Arts High School at the Perpich Center for Arts Education, who will direct the chorus.

Rehearsals will be at the Lake Harriet Masonic Lodge, 4519 France Ave. S.

The concert is being produced with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.
