The Holocaust Music Project weaves together harpist Emily Kleinís paternal grandparentís story of survival as Hungarian Jews living through the Holocaust with that of composer Ilse Weber, a woman who was interred at Theresienstadt and ultimately perished at Auschwitz.
Music of Ilse Weber is performed by Ms. Klein, accompanied by soprano Camille Jasensky, to demonstrate Weberís day-to-day hopes, fears, and struggles during World War II.
Following the presentation, poetry exercises ensue in the image of Ilse Weberís work and audience members share their poetry for each other with the accompaniment of harp music.
No registration required.
This program is for adults and for teens entering grades 6 to 12.
