Haig Mardirosian, organist and dean of UT’s College of Arts and Letters, will perform an organ concert “In Memoriam 9/11” at The University of Tampa on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. The concert is on Sunday, Sept. 11, at 2 p.m., and will be held at the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values on campus.

The concert is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Doors open 30 minutes before the concerts.

Mardirosian will perform the works of Leo Sowerby, César Franck, Dan Locklair, J.S. Bach, Samuel Barber and Joseph Jongen. The concert will include the “Aeolian Sonata,” a 9/11 commemorative work by Wake Forest University composer Dan Locklair.

Mardirosian’s concert is part of the 2011-2012 Concert Artist Series in the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. Future concerts include the organist of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, and the traditional University of Tampa holiday concert in December.
