“For many victims of Nazi brutality, music was an important means of preserving and asserting their humanity.” – United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
On January 27, 2020, International Holocaust Remembrance Day will coincide with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Music of Remembrance (MOR) presents Art From Ashes, a free community-wide concert marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Music of Remembrance’s stellar ensemble will join forces with some of the region’s most talented youth ensembles – the Northwest Boychoir, the Seattle Girls Choir, and the University of Washington Chamber Orchestra – in a program showcasing remarkable chamber and vocal works created by murdered composers from across Nazi-controlled Europe. These musical treasures remain as a testament to inspiring courage and resilience in a time of unfathomable horrors. They tell stories that resonate today as strongly as ever.
