New Concert-Drama Preview: Hours of Freedom: The Terezín Composer, a work written and conceived by the Defiant Requiem Foundation’s creator and conductor, Murry Sidlin, will showcase music by fifteen composers imprisoned in the concentration camp of Terezin during WWII.

Hours of Freedom combines video, music and narrative to highlight works by Viktor Ullman, Gideon Klein, Zigmund Schul, Pavel Haas and Rudolf Karel among others and explores the sustenance that music provided in the camp.

During this premiere performance, School of Music faculty artist Rita Sloan will perform with UMD School of Music students.
