Carnegie Hall Group Trip: We are Here: Songs from the Holocaust
“We Are Here: Songs From The Holocaust” is a concert featuring songs written in the ghettos and concentration camps of Nazi-occupied Europe and the former Soviet Union. In the years after the Holocaust, Jewish artists collected and published fourteen songbooks of wartime music. From heart-wrenching folk ballads to up-tempo satire, these songs present a powerful spectrum of the human experience, interspersed with true stories about the artists? lives. This concert serves to honor the memory of those murdered during the Shoah and pay tribute to the artists who, in the worst of times, continued to create.
The concert will feature performances from Broadway stars such as Harvey Fierstein and Chita Rivera, pop artists, renowned Cantors, and a choir of New York City students.
Comfortable transportation to and from Carnegie Hall will be provided. The bus will leave the JCC at 5:45 PM and return after the event at approximately 10:30 PM. Space is limited to 14.
This event is generously subsidized by UJA/Verve 55+ Living. For more information about the concert go to https://www.wearehereconcert.com/
