A Visit with Holocaust Survivors about Bernstein’s Kaddish Symphony

We spent a wonderful morning with Tucson’s Jewish Family Children’s Services Holocaust Survivor group! Our conversation centered around the religious aspects of Leonard Bernstein’s work, focused on his MASS! (True Concord Voices and Orchestra, January 26 and 28) and his “Kaddish” Symphony (Tucson Symphony January 19 and 21).

Many in the group shared stories of Bernstein’s impact on their musical experiences. It is an honor to know these wonderful people.
