Resonance of Hope: Building Bridges Through Music
Hear the premiere of a work by composer Gerald Cohen and performed by Rabbi/Cantor Jeffrey Myers and the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus, especially commissioned for this event.
Alongside with CAPA Vocal Department members, vocalist Anita Levels will sing songs from the Civil Rights Movement; CAPA’s Theatre Arts program students will read quotes from Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and Dr. Martin Luther King; and poet Danielle Obisie-Orlu will introduce a piece she wrote for the event.
We will also recognize Kristallnacht, the night of shattered glass, which occurred on November 9, 1938, through poetry about the Holocaust by Valerie Bacharach and music by Jewish and Black American composers commissioned by the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh and performed by Pittsburgh Symphony musicians David McCarroll and Tatjana Mead Chamis, and cellist Angela Park.
This concert is produced by Flavio Chamis and Gerald Savage.
