Bard College plans 3 'Holocaust' concerts
Bard College's Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities is presenting a special concert series titled "Music in the Holocaust, Jewish Identity and Cosmopolitanism," featuring music composed and performed by Jewish prisoners in Nazi territories during World War II.
Three concerts will feature a brief introduction by a noted scholar in the field placing the music within the context of the larger social, historical and political background out of which it developed, according to the Dutchess County tourism's calendar of events.
The series will include a screening of the Academy Award-Nominated documentary "Orchestra of Exiles," a film about Bronislaw Huberman, the Polish violinist who founded the Israel Philharmonic. It will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, in the Weis Cinema of the Bertelsmann Campus Center. The concert dates are Saturday, April 20, and Saturday, April 27. All concerts are at Olin Hall on the Bard campus. To attend, send an email to email@example.com or call 845-758-7878.
