WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Remembering the Women's Orchestra of Birkenau. Based on memoirs and histories of survivors of the only women's orchestra to play in WWII concentration camps, this concert recreates the unusual instrumentation of the orchestra: violins, mandolins, accordion, recorder, flute, cello, piano, percussion and singers. The story is told through readings, choral music and representative orchestral music.
