Toccata’s 9/11 Memorial Concert Series continues Friday, Sept. 13 in South Lake Tahoe.

The Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus annually commemorates the anniversary to the Sept. 11 tragedy. This year, it concludes the season’s MusicFest with those performances. The South Shore performance will be held at 7 p.m. in the acoustically sound St. Theresa Catholic Church, 1041 Lyons Ave.

The concert will open with Mozart’s symphonic-choral masterpiece, Requiem, with soloists Katharine DeBoer, Joy Strotz and Anna Helwing, sopranos; Stephanie Dixon, mezzo soprano, Albert Lee and Chris Nelson, tenor and Stuart Duke, baritone; and includes the 65 voice Tahoe Symphony Orchestra Chorus.

The series concludes with famed violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn performing Beethoven’s Concerto for Violin in D major, Op.61 on the legendary Red Stradivarius Violin. Maestro James Rawie, Toccata’s founder and artistic director, will conduct all performances.

There will be two more performances in the series: 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 at Shepherd of the Sierra Lutheran Church in Carson City and 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Reno
