In Sept. 11 tributes 

September 11 Remembered, sponsored by the Durham Art Guild, brings together the work of 13 area artists to commemorate the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Three photographers (Dawn Dreyer, Robin Gallant and Independent contributor Jenny Warburg--one of Warburg's photos is pictured above) and 10 artists (Javier Alarcon, Marcia Di Martino, Claudia Fulshaw, Ellen Kong, Jim Lee, Eric McRay, Greg Shelnutt, Steven Silverleaf, Jan-Ru Wan and Mia Yoon) have contributed to a moving tribute to the victims of the attacks and the spirit of the people who rallied to their aid. There will also be an opening reception and ceremony from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 11, with remarks by several local religious and political leaders at 6 p.m. The community is invited to gather and share in the healing power of the creative process at this open reception. The exhibit, open through Oct. 8, is in the Durham Arts Council, 120 Morris Street, Durham. Call 560-2713 for details. —Angie Carlson

The Rolling Requiem is a worldwide choral commemoration of Sept. 11, 2001, with performances of Mozart's Requiem to be performed in each time zone, starting at the International Date Line and continuing from zone to zone for a 24-hour musical tribute to honor those who gave their lives in last year's terrorist attacks. Initiated by the Seattle Symphony Choral, choirs worldwide were recruited, with choir members all wearing heart-shaped badges bearing the name of a person who died in the tragedy. Locally, conductor Rodney Wynkoop will lead the N.C. Symphony Orchestra accompanied by the Choral Society of Durham, the Duke Chorale, the Duke Chapel Choir and the Chapel Hill Community Chorus in their performance of Requiem on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 8:46 a.m. at Meymandi Hall in Raleigh.
