EMF faculty and young artists will join Music of Remembrance to create a moving and inspiring experience. Tickets are general admission and may be purchased for $25 by visiting www.EasternMusicFestival.org, the EMF Box Office (232 S. Elm St., Greensboro), calling Triad Stage at (336) 272-0160, or calling toll free at (866) 579-TIXX.
Music of Remembrance was founded in 1998 by artistic director Mina Miller. MOR maintains a repertoire of preserved works written during the Holocaust in camps and ghettos as well as premiering new works that honor those who suffered and were lost.
"By performing these works, we seek to bring life to the passion, pride and dignity that these composers preserved and distilled into their art," says Miller.
MOR is committed to honoring musicians who became victim to the Holocaust and their passion for music and life.
This moving concert reaches out to not only the Jewish community, but to all who seek tolerance.
A lecture by founder and artistic director Mina Miller will take place at 4 p.m. A reception will follow the performance.
