National Endowment for the Arts announces grant to Seattle's Music of Remembrance

National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $27 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment's first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019. Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $25,000 to Music of Remembrance for the commission of The Parting, a new opera by Tom Cipullo.

Art Works is the Arts Endowment's principal grantmaking program. The agency received 1,605 Art Works applications for this round of grantmaking and will award 972 grants in this category.

'The arts enhance our communities and our lives, and we look forward to seeing these projects take place throughout the country, giving Americans opportunities to learn, to create, to heal, and to celebrate,' said Mary Anne Carter, acting chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.

The NEA grant will support the commission, production, premiere and additional performances of The Parting, a chamber opera by Guggenheim Award-winning composer Tom Cipullo and librettist David Mason. The opera is an intimate exploration of the life and work of Miklós Radnóti, widely considered one of the most important poetic witnesses to the Holocaust. Radnóti was a distinctive figure in Budapest's literary and intellectual circles between the world wars. Conscripted for slave labor because of his Jewish heritage, Radnóti was murdered on a death march. When his body was exhumed from a mass grave after the war, his jacket pocket revealed a notebook with poems chronicling what he'd experienced. The opera, approximately 60 minutes long, is scored for three singers and five instruments. Following the premiere in Seattle's Benaroya Hall on May 19, 2019, Music of Remembrance will reprise it at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music on May 23, 2019. The performances in both cities will be combined with education outreach.

About Music of Remembrance
Founded in 1998 by pianist Mina Miller, Music of Remembrance (MOR) fills a unique role throughout the world by remembering the Holocaust through music. With concert performances, educational programs, recordings, and commissions of new works by some of today's leading composers, MOR honors those of all backgrounds who found the strength to create even in the face of suffering, and those who had the courage to speak out against cruelty. We tell stories that communicate urgent lessons for today, and we look beyond the Holocaust itself to the experience of others who have been excluded or persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.
