We are so proud that our very own Dr. Noreen Green joined historian James Grymes, composer and conductor Victoria Bond, and violinist Renée Jolles for the United Nations panel at the UN Headquarters in New York “Music and the Holocaust: History Memory and Justice” on November 10, 2022! In remembrance of the November 1938 Pogram, the conversation examined the relationship of music to the Holocaust, how this relationship can increase our understanding of history, and the place of music in Holocaust commemoration, memory and education. These experts discussed the importance of performing pieces composed during the Holocaust, or by composers who did not survive the Holocaust, and the response of contemporary musicians to the history of the Holocaust. commemorating Kristallnacht.
The audience response is in and we couldn’t be more in awe of the impact Maestra Green had on viewers all over the globe!

“What courage it took for her to sing acapella that Dachau Stay Strong song, composed by Herbert Zipper and others at the end of her talk. True guts and chutzpah; Spectacular.”
