This is the first of three videos in the series, “Journey to Carnegie: From Concept to Concert Hall,” about how a Kansas organization, an acclaimed composer, and University of Kansas musicians collaborated on a symphony about life in the post-9/11 world.

The composer, Mohammed Fairouz, named the symphony “In the Shadow of No Towers.” He was inspired by the comic book of the same title by Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novelist Art Spiegelman. Reach Out Kansas Inc. commissioned the symphony for the KU Wind Ensemble, directed by Paul W. Popiel.

In Part 1, Fairouz, Popiel, and Jim Zakoura, of Reach Out Kansas, each examine how the piece was developed.

The symphony’s world premiere was March 26, 2013, in New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. The Kansas premiere was April 2, 2013, at KU’s Lied Center. Find out more about the project: http://www.ku.edu/carnegiehall
