Songs of Truth
ABOUT SONGS OF TRUTH: HOLOCAUST AWARENESS CONCERT & CONVERSATION PROJECT
The Songs of Truth: Holocaust Awareness Concert & Conversation Project pays tribute to the exceptional talent and resilience of Jewish composers who continued to create music while imprisoned during the Holocaust. It provides a unique window into learning about the Holocaust through music, while inspiring audiences to reflect on, recognize, and resist the rise of antisemitism today.
The project is a collaboration of the San Francisco based Golden Gate Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, and Citizen Film, co-presented with the NY-based Holocaust Music Lost & Found.
We offer Songs of Truth to our diverse audiences as a way to stand together as allies with the Jewish community against hatred and disinformation.
A full length orchestral concert with multimedia storytelling and conversation will be performed in:
- San Francisco, CA – the Herbst Theatre – June 4th, 2023 – 2:00 pm
- Benicia, CA – the Historic Clock Tower – June 2nd, 2023 – 7:30 pm
A smaller ensemble will also present 8-10 Community Concerts in Bay Area high schools, congregations, community centers and museums including the Contemporary Jewish Museum and the San Francisco Public Library.
Tickets coming soon!
