|Liberation of Auschwitz
Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 - 7:00pm
Ted Mann Concert Hall
Tuesday, January 27, 2015 marks (exactly) the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz. Arnold Schoenberg's rarely performed A Survivor from Warsaw is programmed within the WORLD-PREMIERE of noted composer James Bassi's Five Prayers.
Commissioned by The Apollo Club, Five Prayers is a five-movement symphonic song cycle for male chorus, solo baritone, orchestra, and dancer. This concert is artistically conceived to begin and end liberatingly with the darkest moment in the center of the program, to symbolically represent the U-shaped Jewish menorah.
> James Andrews, Dancer from NYC and student of Mikhail Baryshnikov
> Aaron James, Baritone
