Pre-concert discussion with Composer Sheridan Seyfreid at 6:30 pm, included in ticket price
Kristallnacht: The November Pogrom will be commemorated with Voices of the Holocaust, a concert presented by the DC Metropolitan Area Jewish Synagogues combined choirs in the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda on Sunday, November 10, at 7:30PM. This spectacular choral work highlights melodies from the ghettos and concentration camps of Europe. It is a tribute to all who endured the devastation and turmoil of the Holocaust.
Tickets are $36 and $54 - at the Strathmore Box Office only (tickets go on sale July 15)
The performance in Bethesda will commemorate not only the Holocaust, but also the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Nov. 9, 1938 pogrom against Germany's Jewish population. On that "night of broken glass," Nazi storm troopers and German citizens ransacked Jewish synagogues, homes and businesses.
Choirs from 22 local Jewish congregations will be joined by the Juniata College Concert Choir as well as an ensemble of local Cantors and Music Directors from Reform and Conservative Jewish congregations. The musical accompaniment for the piece will be provided by the members of the Columbia Orchestra. All musicians will be led under the direction of guest conductor, Jason Love. Mr. Love is a Peabody alum and celebrated conductor and cellist in Howard County, Maryland.
The independent producers of this event are paying a fee to rent the Music Center at Strathmore for this performance.
