Virtual Concert: Art From Ashes 2023


Continuing its annual tradition of honoring the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27, 1945, MOR presents a chamber music program showcasing some of the remarkable works created by murdered composers from across Nazi-controlled Europe. The music comes from one of the darkest periods in human history. Yet, even in the face of annihilation, these composers continued to create inspired music while incarcerated in ghettos and concentration camps. Although they were murdered, their works remain as a testament to courage and resilience in a time of horror. They tell stories that resonate today as strongly as ever.

MOR’s core ensemble of stellar performers is drawn from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
