Description

Jewish prisoners in the Terezín Concentration Camp experienced the worst of human degradation yet performed Verdi’s Requiem 16 times with only a single smuggled score, including one performance before senior SS officials from Berlin and an International Red Cross delegation.

Imprisoned conductor Rafael Schächter told the choir, “We will sing to the Nazis what we cannot say to them.” In this concert-drama, guest conductor Murry Sidlin leads the University Symphony and combined UW Chamber Singers and University Chorale in performing Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín, featuring Verdi's Requiem.
