Admission: Voluntary Contribution

 

Kimberly Barber, mezzo-soprano

Ulrike Anton, flute

Anna Ronai, piano

 

Fresh from a performance at IES Abroad in Vienna, mezzo-soprano Kimberly Barber, flutist Ulrike Anton and pianist Anna Ronai offer Und der Regen rinnt: Music of the Holocaust, a noon hour concert featuring works by Ilse Weber, Marius Flothuis, Srul Irving Glick and Vally Weigl. This poignant program includes music and poetry that were created in the concentration camp at Theresienstadt (where many artists were incarcerated and met their untimely deaths), as well as that of “one who got away” finding refuge in the United States. Inspired by a program created by Anne Sofie von Otter and colleagues, this music is a testament to the healing power of art and music, and the indomitability of the human spirit.
