The 'Night' Concert

Wednesday, November 20 | 2:30 and 7:30 PM
The Kravis Center

The concert, intended to be “a stand against hate” — to raise awareness of the dangers of hate now simmering around the world, hate that has in the past, and can again in the future, lead to violence and genocide, is built around Night, Nobel Peace Prize winner Wiesel's memoir of his survival from the Auschwitz death camp as a 15-year-old. Excerpts from the work — spoken by an actor in front of photos projected on a screen — will be accompanied by the music of the celebrated Ukrainian-born cantor and composer Leib Glantz (1898-1964), 20 of whose songs have been combined into a symphonic oratorio by our conductor for the evening, Joseph Ness. He will lead the Symphony and a 100-voice choral ensemble in what will be an unforgettable audiovisual experience.

Don't miss this unique concert event.
