Brundibar is a children’s opera performed by inmates of the Terezin concentration camp. This program is part of the Rediscovered Masters Program, a series of performances celebrating Jewish composers and their music, much of which was suppressed during the Holocaust period and subsequently forgotten. Music Director Michael Christie is committed to resurrecting this lost treasure and celebrating these artists’ rightful places in musical history.
The concert is Thursday, June 28th, 7:30 pm at Chautauqua Auditorium. Group tickets $60; includes Section A seats and Reception. Register online at www.boulderjcc.org.
Other Rediscovered Masters concerts include the North American premiere of Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s flute concerto on July 22 and the Greenberg Symphony No. 5 on August 2 & 3. For information or tickets visit www.comusic.org or phone 303-449-1397.
