JACARANDA’S “SHATTERED GLASS” CONCERT REMEMBERS KRISTALLNACHT AFTER 75 YEARS

A Journey From the Ghetto to Hollywood, From Vienna to New York Will Inspire and Uplift With Chorus & Orchestra

Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, 8 p.m.
First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica 

 

The second concert of Jacaranda’s new season will observe the 75th anniversary of the infamous Kristallnacht, Nov. 9, 1938, when Jewish business, temples, schools, hospitals and homes were systematically vandalized, damaged or destroyed across Nazi Germany and parts of Austria. Some 90 Jews were killed and 30,000 were arrested and sent to concentration camps between Nov. 9 and 10th. The concert will travel musically from the Jewish quarter (Samuel Adler’s Klezmer Fantasy” for solo clarinet) to Hollywood (Eric Zeisl’s “Hebrew Requiem”) via trains across the U.S. and Europe (Steve Reich’s Different Trains for string quartet and pre-recorded tracks). Along the way, the Jacaranda Chamber Singers will perform two brief unaccompanied choral works about peace and endurance (Arnold Schoenberg’s “Friede auf Eden” and “De Profundis”). To be performed under the baton of Mark Alan Hilt, Jacaranda’s music director and resident conductor, Zeisl’s 1944 requiem, with soloists, chorus and orchestra, was the first musical work to commemorate the holocaust.
