On Sept. 11 at 7 pm, Mayor Michael Bloomberg will commemorate the anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks by lighting an eternal flame at the Sphere memorial in Battery Park, and the event will be broadcast live to a location in each of the five boroughs. Brooklynites are invited to watch the broadcast live at the Prospect Park band shell.

The event will continue with live performances at the band shell by the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus (pictured) and other artists.

City Cultural Affairs Commissioner Kate Levin said at Tuesday’s opening of the new Brooklyn Youth Chorus Academy on Pacific Street, that she has been hearing about the Brooklyn Youth Chorus for 10 years and the chorus was chosen to perform at the important event in part because "their new CD’s recording of ’Amazing Grace’ brought tears to the eyes of the battle-hardened staff" who are programming the concerts in the five boroughs.

Bring a candle and a chair or blanket. Enter the park at Prospect Park West and Ninth Street. The concert will conclude at 9 pm. The event is free.
