Hours of Freedom: The Story of the Terezín Composer showcases music by fifteen composers imprisoned in the Theresienstadt (Terezín) Concentration Camp during WWII. Presented as nine chapters with titles including, “Hope,” “Fate,” “Longing” and “The Eyewitness,” this concert combines music, video, and narrative to highlight works by Viktor Ullmann, Gideon Klein, Zigmund Schul, Pavel Haas, Rudolf Karel and others. The compositions performed portray the agony and suffering of camp life, along with the inspiration, revelation, harmony, and hope that comes through music.
Admission is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
