In April 2002, Haruko Smith founded The September Concert Foundation for the sole purpose of organizing an annual citywide music festival in New York, “in remembrance of September 11th and a celebration of our universal humanity.” The September Concert will be held at 9 public parks throughout Manhattan: Merchant’s Gate in Central Park, the NY Public Library, Herald Square, Greeley Square, Madison Square Park, Tompkins Square, Washington Square, City Hall Park, and Union Square. At 2 pm, there will be a city-wide sing-along of this year’s anthem “I Believe in Music” by Mac David. (Last year’s anthem was “All You Need is Love” by the Beatles.)
Peter McDowell and Lilli Weisz will produce all NYC concerts, except for the Herald Square concert, which is being produced by Macy’s this year. Among the endorsers of the Concert are Con Edison, Gristedes Supermarket, NYC & Company, and Chancellor Joel Klein of the New York City Department of Education.
