Drawing from repertories of Jewish song from the Holocaust gathered from the cabarets, camps, ghettos, theaters, and films, the 2016 Grammy-nominated New Budapest Orpheum Society bears witness to those murdered, those who resisted, and those who must not be forgotten. In this concert commemorating Yom HaShoah, the NBOS honors composers Hermann Leopoldi, Friedrich Hollander, Imré Kálmán, Hans Eisler/Bertolt Brecht, and Erich Korngold, whose musical contributions trace a path to the European Jewish past resounded once again.
Pre-concert talk at 6:30pm by Dr. Philip V. Bohlman, Ludwig Rosenberger Distinguished Service Professor in Jewish History, University of Chicago.

Co-sponsored by the Leo Baeck Institute, the YIVO Institute, and the American Jewish Historical Society
