Temple Shalom of Newton Presents
Sounds of Survival: Music of the Women’s Orchestra of Auschwitz
Sunday, Nov. 13, 2011 – 7 PM
Featuring Cantorial Soloist Jeri Robins, Northeastern University Gideon Klein Fellow, along with singers and musicians from both Hebrew College and the local community, as they present the stories of survival and the music of these extraordinary women, who played for their lives.
The Women’s Orchestra of Auschwitz sounds like a contradiction in terms. How could beautiful music be produced by an orchestra surrounded by illness and death, starvation and cold, immense suffering, hatred and loss? Yet, participation in this orchestra was likely the source of salvation for the “orchestra girls.” This concert will give voice to their experiences and, in so doing, remember not only those who survived, but also those who perished.
Tickets purchased in advance are $20 for general admission, $15 for students and seniors. Tickets purchased at the door will be $25. All tickets will be picked-up the night of the concert.
A dessert reception will follow the concert.
