Carnegie Hall holds 'Concert of Remembrance'

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Carnegie Hall opened its doors Sunday for a "Concert of Remembrance" to honor the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Yo-Yo Ma, the world famous cellist opened the show with the "Appalachia Waltz" which he performed underneath a huge American Flag that dominated the world famous stage.

Leontyne Price, the legendary opera singer who came out of retirement for a special performance sang "America The Beautiful" to a capacity crowd of more than 2,000 people.

The crowd, many of whom waited for hours to get the free tickets, were encouraged to donate money to a relief agency to help victims of the World Trade Center attack by an attachment on their tickets and a list of organizations on the back of their programs.
