Founded in 1998 by pianist Mina Miller, Music of Remembrance (MOR) fills a unique role throughout the world by remembering the Holocaust through music with concert performances, educational programs, recordings and commissions of new works. Along with its large and varied repertoire of Holocaust-era music, MOR commissions and premieres new Holocaust-inspired works by some of today’s leading composers, building bridges across generations and sharing stories that underline the Holocaust’s urgent moral relevance for us now.
While MOR has a special place in the Jewish community, its mission is not religious and its scope not limited to Jewish music or experience. Our programs have also focused on the Holocaust’s impact on homosexuals, women, children, Roma, political prisoners and courageous free-thinkers.
Musicians’ resistance took many forms, and crossed many national and religious boundaries. This resistance cannot have been in vain. We remember these musicians by preserving and performing their music.
