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.
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.
