Every week for almost 2 years, a group of teenage prisoners in the Terezín concentration camp expressed their hopes, dreams and fears in a secret magazine they dared create under the noses of their Nazi captors. Hear their inspiring words set to music in American composer Lori Laitman’s stirring oratorio, featuring Seattle’s magnificent Northwest Boychoir joined by soloists Ross Hauck and Karen Early Evans. Part of a varied program with works by composers with the courage to confront Nazi evil through their music.
