Conlon Presents Bernstein's Kaddish

James Conlon, conductor

Judith and Leah Pisar, speakers

Diana Newman, soprano

University of Maryland Concert Choir

Jason Ferdinand, director

Maryland State Boychoir

Stephen Holmes, director

Stunning music and profound words combine to awaken our collective dreams of peace and freedom. In Leonard Bernstein’s “Kaddish” Symphony, the Hebrew prayer for times of bereavement sparks a heated exploration of spirit and fate, a testament made all the more poignant with updated words by a Holocaust survivor Samuel Pisar (narrated here by his family). Artistic Advisor James Conlon, leading a heart-wrenching score by the German-Jewish composer Franz Schreker, explores the latest in his series of Recovered Voices, honoring composers silenced by Nazi regime.

This performance will also occur on Sun,. Oct 9 at 3 PM at the Music Center at Strathmore in Baltimore, MD.
