Tonight VPR Classical offers a prelude to the VSO’s “Terezín Remembered” programs this week with "A Voice for the Silenced", an exploration of the music that was created in the Terezín concentration camp.
 
Music journalist Monika Vischer and conductor James Conlon offer their insight along with conversation with singer Ela Weissberger, who survived the camp, and music by Terezín composers Gideon Klein and Pavel Haas.

At 9 Cheryl Willoughby continues the journey with Olivier Messiaen’s transcendent “Quartet for the End of Time”, written in 1940 during the composer’s internment in a German prison camp.
