The Butler School of Music presents 'Empowering Voice: The Banned And The Damned'
Posted: September 16, 2011
The Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies is happy to promote the Butler School of Music's upcoming event "Empowering Voice: The Banned and the Damned."
The two-day conference will feature lectures and performances of music from the Czech concentration camp Terezín (Theresienstadt) and from artists who were exiled and banned during World War II. Lectures will take place in the Jessen Auditorium from 2-5 p.m. Oct. 3 and 4, with performances each evening from 7:30-9:30. See the Butler School of Music's Web site for more information and a full listing of events.
Next fall, the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies in collaboration with Texas Performing Arts will present a symposium focusing on the legacy of Terezín's music, art, and culture, and its impact on post-war music, theater, and dance.
