Today marks the 8th anniversary of those devastating terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Western Pennsylvania.A special commemorative program will be held tonight at 7 in the Logan Tabernacle and everyone’s encouraged to attend the free event. It’s hosted by Cache Community Connections, a group of local religious and community leaders who came together after the terror attacks.The program will feature the American Festival Chorus, founded and directed by USU Music Department head Craig Jessop. Jessop says it will be an evening of “joyful noise” and meditation.”It is to celebrate those values that bring us together, all people, with a resolve to make sure that this terrible thing does not happen again,” Jessop said on KVNU’s Crosstalk Show Friday. “It begins right in our own community, mutual tolerance and respect for one another and each other’s beliefs.”Jessop said the chorus will be accompanied by Mormon Tabernacle Choir organist Clay Christiansen. There will also be brief talks by representatives of different local faiths.
