Sparks of Glory: Mirror of Memory

Venue
Additional times
*Saturday, February 1 at 2:00 p.m. at the Tacoma Art Museum

Free to the public.

This event was part of our free Sparks of Glory educational series.

For this debut concert at Hillel UW, the Seattle-based Music of Remembrance (MOR) performed a free 60-minute program of chamber music for strings by composers who were imprisoned in concentration camps and ghettos: Gideon Klein and Hans Krása (Terezín); David Beigelman (Lodz Ghetto); Erwin Schulhoff (Wülzburg). Remarkably, the musicians and composers imprisoned in Terezín never ceased creating. MOR Artistic Director Mina Miller, an authority on the music of the Holocaust era, introduces each work with commentary about its musical and historical context. The performers, members of MOR’s stellar instrumental ensemble, are among Seattle’s leading musicians, drawn largely from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.

*An encore performance of this free-concert-with-commentary took place at the Tacoma Art Museum - MOR's Tacoma debut!
