Spring Concert: Ceija
The Holocaust touched people of countless faces, places and identities. At our spring concert we present MOR’s next large music commission: a daring new work about the experience of Europe's Roma people during the Holocaust. Composer Mary Kouyoumdjian’s work, to open myself, to scream, shares the story of Romani artist Ceija Stojka, who survived three concentration camps to become a noted painter and writer. The performance includes compelling visual imagery created by Syrian-Armenian artist Kevork Mourad.
