Mission and History

​​​​​​​Music of Remembrance (MOR) is a Seattle-based performing arts organization dedicated to addressing questions of human rights and social justice through the transformative power of music. Established in 1998 with a mission to ensure that voices of witness to the Holocaust be heard, its mission has evolved to explore the resilience of all who have been persecuted or excluded for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality. Over the years, it has demonstrated itself to be a powerful creative catalyst for “testimonies for tomorrow” – persuasive musical works that explore the consequences of intolerance toward the other.
