Performance & Recording of Oskar Morawetz's "From the Diary of Anne Frank"

A concert performance and Holocaust Education Week presentation is in the works for this exciting and moving piece of music. It is something I have dreamed of for more than 4 years to do, and now finally it is becoming a reality! 2020 is the 75th Anniversary of the end of WWII and the liberation of the Concentration Camps. It is now more than ever that we must stop to remember, and to ensure that these atrocities Never happen Again.
