Concert Description

Join us to pay tribute to composers whose lives and music were profoundly impacted by the war. This is music of remembrance. We remember composers like Paul Hindemith and Bernhard Heiden, who immigrated to American to flee Nazi Germany. We remember Polish composer Grażyna Bacewicz, who spent the war years displaced from her home, performing clandestine concerts. And through the music of Paul Chihara, we remember the internment of thousands of Japanese Americans in Minidoka, Idaho.
