Postcards Lost – Festival of the Sound
July 24 @ 1:30 pm EDT - 3:30 pm EDT
Alan Stein, an artist whose paintings have been featured all around Georgian Bay, found a treasure trove of postcards sent by his family before and after WW2. They were trapped for a while in the Lodz ghetto, some emigrated to Israel or Canada, some died. This forms the basis of the program. The musicians will be piano, clarinet, violin and mezzo-soprano, plus a Yiddish narrator.
The music features renowned Canadian musicians performing an array of works to complement the narrative thread, including heart-warming Yiddish songs, profoundly moving children’s poems set to music and stirring works by a variety of Jewish composers. Starring Andrew Ludwig, mezzo-soprano; James Campbell, clarinet; Moshe Hammer, violin and Daniel Vnukowski, piano.
