Members of the New York City Fire Department pipe band will be in Seattle this week for the West Coast premiere of a documentary celebrating their 50th anniversary.
The Seattle Firefighters Pipes & Drums, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary, will host the event Thursday at the Showbox.
The film, “Through Triumph & Tragedy – 50 Years of the FDNY Pipes & Drums,” documents the history of the FDNY Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, from its origins with just 17 members in 1962, through the horror and grief of 9/11.

In a stunning, and unexpected, tribute to New York’s old World Trade Center, the Freedom Tower caught the sun and shot a beam of light into the heavens this weekend.
The beam of light is reminiscent of the annual Tribute in Light display to memorialize those who died in the towers on 9/11. Each September, 88 searchlights are trained into the sky creating two vertical columns of light to mimic where the towers once stood.

A Greek Orthodox church crushed on 9/11 is finally being resurrected.
Hundreds of people flocked to the future site of the St. Nicholas National Shrine for a “ground-blessing” ceremony Saturday to celebrate a house of worship that will one day overlook the 9/11 Museum and Memorial.
A $38 million, domed alabaster sanctuary will replace its modest 19th-century predecessor — a tiny four-story building toppled by the collapse of the South Tower. It was the only church destroyed in the September 11, 2011, attacks.
