VPR Classical observes Holocaust Remembrance Day
Join VPR Classical for two special programs devoted to Holocaust Remembrance Day.
At 8, Monika Vischer hosts "Terezin: Lost Music from the Holocaust". Mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter discusses her new recording, Terezin - Theresienstadt, works solely comprised of pieces that were written or sung in the so-called "cultural" concentration camp in the former Czechoslovakia.
At 9, it's "A Voice For the Silenced", an exploration of how music and culture still thrived in the most desperate of times at the Terezin concentration camp.
