Concert and Lecture
This multimedia performance features beautiful music by composers that lived through the ugliest of circumstances. Performed by Austrian artist Ulrike Anton(flute), Kimberly Barber(mezzo-soprano), and Anna Ronai(piano), and moderated by Prof. Dr. Gerold Gruber, the musicians will play pieces by Vally Weigl, Walter Kaufmann, Srul Irving Glick, Marius Flothuis and Viktor Ullmann – composers who were killed, imprisoned or were forced to flee Nazi Germany and went to Canada, India and the U.S. Accompanied by images, poems, and biographical text, this poignant concert will demonstrate the healing power of art and music and the indomitability of the human spirit.
Co-presented by Beit Rayim Synagogue and School & the City of Richmond Hill with support from exil.arte Centre of the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna and the Austrian Cultural Forum.
