Holocaust Remembrance Day
In a second annual partnership event, the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation and Temple Ahavat Achim will present a Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Remembrance Day program. The program will include the world premiere of a new work for strings, piano, clarinet, and vocalists, The Grip of Evil: The Endurance of Hope, by American composer Leslie Steinweiss, commissioned for the occasion. Music for solo clarinet by Stephen Bates, a performance of Gideon Klein’s String Trio by the Radlberger Ensemble, a reading by Holocaust Legacy Fellow Gillian Pergament, and related stories by storyteller Judith Black, will complete the program.
A Kosher brunch will be offered at Temple Ahavat Achim prior to the concert. Following the brunch, participants will walk together to the Gloucester Meetinghouse at the corner of Middle and Church Streets. Event details subject to change.
