Kristallnacht Commemorative Concert - A Tribute to "The Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz"

A tribute to "The Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz", this year’s Kristallnacht Commemorative Concert tells the stories of the lives of four women through the evening’s music programme.

Journeying from pre-war Europe through the horrors of the war, recounting the many roles music played in their lives – resistance, survival, resilience, and a means to battle racism and fascism.
From virtuoso violin talent touring Europe to conductor of "The Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz”, the story of Alma Rosé, and two other inspirational women’s lives will be shared through this unique concert.

The concert musicians are:
Amalia Hall, Violin
Martin Riseley, Violin
Inbal Megiddo, Cello
Kristallnacht Ensemble

MC Donald Maurice, with narration by Inbal Megiddo and Sharn Maree Cassady.

Presented by The Holocaust Centre of New Zealand, in partnership with New Zealand School of Music—Te Kōkī, Victoria University of Wellington.
Supported by The Public Trust Hall and building owners Maurice and Kaye Clark, and the Adam Foundation, and the Council of Jewish Women.

This concert commemorates Kristallnacht, “The Night of Broken Glass”, the November pogrom, 9 -10 November 1938, when carefully orchestrated anti-Jewish violence was carried out across Germany, Austria, and the Sudetenland.

You are invited to join us for this uniquely informative and moving concert.
9 November at the Public Trust Hall, 6.30 PM (the concert will begin at 7:00 PM, refreshments will be served from 6:30 PM)
