      Defiant Requiem

      Defiant Requiem is a little-known footnote in the history of choral music, at first surreal, but soon inspiring humility and awe: In late 1943, a chorus of 150 Jews imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp engaged in 16 performances of Verdi's Requiem-learned by rote from a single vocal score and accompanied by a legless upright piano-before audiences of other prisoners, SS officers, and German army staff members. Their purpose: to sing to their captors words that could not be spoken. A screening of the film Defiant Requiem followed by a question and answer discussion following the screening with Maestro Murry Sidlin along with a recieption.

      Cost: $15 ADULTS / $25 Adults and Reception with Maestro Murry Sidlin. * contact the Venue listed below for ticketing information
