Winter Chamber Music Series: From Darkness into Light

Program I: Suppression and Rebirth

$18 in advance; $22 at the door

Join us for two intimate, beautiful afternoons of classical music with the Aura Nova Ensemble, led by violinist Mark Singer. Ensemble members include Mark Singer, Daniel Weiser, Ina-Esther Joost, Ben-Sasson, and Viktor Khodyko. From Darkness into Light will trace musical history with performances of 19th century masterworks from Mendelssohn to several by contemporary American-Jewish composers. Let the musicians tell you the story about a sadder time when Jews were barred from musical and cultural life in Europe until the end of the 18th century. With the Nazi takeover of the German government in 1933, Jewish participation in musical culture came to a standstill. Continental Europe’s loss was Great Britain and America’s gain as many musicians found havens in these two countries. And thus, a musical masterpiece is created.
