for Testimony of Witnesses
Join us for the world premiere of Testimony of Witnesses
, an oratorio based on the poetry of Holocaust victims and survivors by Boston Secession’s composer-in-residence Ruth Lomon
. In this extraordinary testament, scored for chorus, orchestra, and soloists, Lomon’s hauntingly beautiful settings illuminate the personal experience of eighteen writers. The texts – in Hebrew, French, German, Italian, Polish, English and Yiddish – reflect both the deeply personal impact of the Holocaust for these artists, as well as the sweeping international repercussions of one of the defining events of the last century.
