Description

Music that Matters! Ryuichi Sakamoto's "Passage" depicts a refugee fleeing violence and persecution. Shinji Eshima's "Veritas" is a soulful plea against religious intolerance. Paul Schoenfield's "Camp Songs" brings dramatic life to the sardonic words that Polish dissident Aleksander Kulisiewicz dared create in Sachsenhausen. Followed by MOR’s annual Gala Dinner evening.
