CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- UNI School of Music Horn Choir students will perform a concert at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 10, in Davis Hall at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.

The UNI Horn Choir travelled to New York City Oct. 8-9 to perform at the 9/11 Memorial and at The High Line. There will be a video and photo presentation about the New York trip by Jason Vizzini, senior communication studies major at UNI, shown during the concert. In addition to the repertoire from the trip, the UNI Horn Choir will perform three other pieces with community horn players.

"Having the group visit the 9/11 Museum before the performance in New York made a huge difference, since most of the students were really young when the attack happened," said Yu-Ting (Tina) Su, director of the UNI Horn Choir. "As a result, the performance at the 9/11 Memorial was more emotional and meaningful for the listeners and the performers."
