Concert: Art From Ashes 2022
On January 27, 1945 Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Army. Continuing its long-standing tradition, Music of Remembrance honors this anniversary with its Art From Ashes program, an annual concert marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Because COVID-19 remains a concern for public events, we are are offering this concert online free to the entire community. The all-new performances pay tribute to musical talents whose very existence the Nazis hoped to erase from history: Gideon Klein, Pavel Haas, Dick Kattenburg, James Simon, Viktor Ullmann, Carlo Taube, Ilse Weber, as well as two amazing but rarely-performed tangos created by prisoners in Auschwitz and Buchenwald.
MOR’s core ensemble of stellar performers is drawn from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. The program will also feature two young artists, violinist Tokuji Miyasaka and cellist Leyna Kitahama, MOR’s 2021 recipients of the David Tonkonogui Memorial Award for Young Artists.
This free concert is our gift to the community, but we need your support to help make it possible.
