9-9-11: Music at Walter Reed

September 9, 2011 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

On August 27, the last 18 patients moved from the now-shuttered Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., to the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda.

For over a century, Walter Reed provided care for our armed forces’ sick and wounded. For much of the past decade, it stood as a grim, yet inspiring reminder of the sacrifices some Americans made as our nation went to war after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Today, we’ll hear some stories from a Maryland woman who spent a lot of time at Walter Reed over the past three years. Musician Carolyn Surrick played the viola da gamba for soldiers at the Mologne House just about every Friday until Walter Reed closed.

On Sunday afternoon, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, her group Trio Galilei will play a concert at the Creative Alliance in Southeast Baltimore. Proceeds from the sale of their CDs will go into making more CDs to be given to soldiers through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.  The concert starts at 3:00.

On Saturday, September 17, Carolyn Surrick will appear at the Ivy Bookshop in Baltimore to talk about her new book, Between War and Here, a collection of poetry and essays about her experiences playing for the wounded warriors.
