Music of Remembrance commemorates International Holocaust Remembrance Day with free concert at Seattle's Benaroya Hall

MUSIC OF REMEMBRANCE
'ART FROM ASHES' CONCERT
BENAROYA HALL
ILLSLEY BALL NORDSTROM RECITAL HALL
January 29 @ 5pm


On Monday, January 29 at 5pm, Music of Remembrance (MOR) presents its annual 'Art from Ashes' concert, a free community-wide event marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Established by a United Nations General Assembly resolution in November 2005, International Holocaust Remembrance Day honors the victims and survivors of the genocide that resulted in the death of an estimated 6 million Jews, 250,000 Roma, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled people, and 9,000 homosexuals. On January 27, 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, was liberated by the Soviet army.

The event will be held at the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall (3rd Ave. at Union St.). Made possible through the generous sponsorship of Jack and Adina Almo, this free concert is an opportunity for the entire Seattle community to come together in remembrance on the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, and to experience a small part of the musical legacy left by those whose art is a testament to survival and hope. The varied program features music by composers like Hans Krása, Gideon Klein, Carlo Taube and Viktor Ullmann, who continued to create even as prisoners in Terezín and build that camp's remarkable musical life before they were sent to their deaths in Auschwitz. It also includes songs of biting satire and nostalgic memory from the courageous cabaret shows that Terezín's inmates organized in the barracks. There are haunting Yiddish songs from the Vilna ghetto, whose doomed occupants never abandoned the quest to defend their community's precious heritage. There are concert works of stunning beauty by murdered composers from across Nazi-controlled Europe, that remind us of the potential that was lost to the world.

These musical treasures remain as a testament to inspiring courage and resilience in a time of unfathomable horrors. They tell stories that resonate today as strongly as ever.

The concert's instrumentalists are drawn largely from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, joined by the Northwest Boychoir and distinguished vocal soloists.

Admission for this concert is free, but tickets are required and are available at www.musicofremembrance.org or by calling 206-365-7770.
