Join us to honor silenced artists of Terezín and all who seek artistic freedom today at a deeply meaningful concert featuring internationally celebrated pianist Simone Dinnerstein performing works by Satie, Glass and Schubert, plus the world premieres of two TMF commissions: “Sanctuary” ​by Ellis Ludwig-Leone of San Fermin and “Refuge” by Afghan composer Milad Yousufi.

Mr. Yousufi is an exciting young composer whose artistic journey began in war-torn Kabul; “Refuge” is the first string quartet by an Afghan artist. Members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra will premiere it. Mr. Ludwig-Leone’s work, “Sanctuary,” is inspired by three contemporary paintings by his famed artist parents and the pianist’s; the result is an intimate meditation on childhood havens for the two musicians.

The Honorable Michael S. Dukakis and Kitty Dukakis will present the 2018 Terezín Legacy Award to Barbara and Steve Grossman at the benefactors’ dinner following the concert.

Our concert evokes the secret piano of Terezín, built from scraps and hidden in a barracks. It brought sustenance to all: “Music for us in Terezín was a sanctuary. ​​Listening to Gideon Klein play the piano took me to another world.”
—Terezín survivor Zuzana Rusicková

Proceeds support Terezín Music Foundation, now in its 28th year of producing concerts, commissions, recordings, publications and programs in Holocaust education in Europe and the U.S.

Join us for a reception at 5 p.m. and the concert at 6 p.m. A private benefactors’ dinner will follow the concert.
