On November 2, students and recent graduates from UCLA will perform works by émigré Polish Jewish composers—repertoire that has enriched the post-Holocaust Jewish music canon—on a concert entitled Kol Polin: Jewish Music from Poland. The program also includes a piece by Israeli composer Gideon Lewensohn, inspired by the life of Polish writer and artist Bruno Schulz, who was murdered by the Gestapo in 1942. The concert is sponsored by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, UCLA Mickey Katz Endowed Chair in Jewish Music, UCLA Department of Slavic, East European & Eurasian Languages and Cultures, UCLA Center for European and Russian Studies, David Vickter Charitable Foundation, and American Society for Jewish Music.
This concert is free and open to the public.
