Concert to Honor Holocaust Victims and Survivors, Brookline, MA, Mar 18

I'm proud to invite you to our March 18th concert entitled "Musik Macht Frei" (music makes you free) that explores the role of music in the survival of the human spirit under the crushing barbarity of the Nazi concentration camps. This concert includes stories of historic performances, archival images and survivor accounts presented to the accompaniment of music performed and/or composed by prisoners. From small choirs to fully
staged operas, this music—making took place against the unlikely backdrop of the camps, both in secret or with the consent of the Nazi officials. I have found this music to be hauntingly beautiful and inspiring and I look forward to sharing it with you.

Please join me, Hinda Goodstein, and the Brookline Chorus in celebration of the human spirit and in remembrance of these terrifying events.
