Music of Remembrance (MOR) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 by Artistic Director Mina Miller to remember the Holocaust through music. In addition to rediscovering and performing music from that time, MOR has commissioned and premiered over twenty new Holocaust-inspired works by some of today’s leading composers, telling new stories that need to be heard and challenging audiences to question their own thinking. Drawing on the Holocaust’s lessons for today, the organization’s musical scope extends beyond those historical events to include the experience of others who have been excluded or persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.
