Renia Perel’s Songs of the Wasteland
7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
1270 Chestnut Street
In a poignant musical drama, the Vancouver Academy of Music (VAM) reflects on Renia Perel’s emotional narrative as a Holocaust survivor in Songs of the Wasteland, on January 26, 2016 at 7:30pm at the Koerner Recital Hall (1270 Chestnut Street). Echoing 20th-century Jewish tradition and culture, music and lyrics will conjure the sorrow of the Holocaust, underlined with sentiments of hope and healing – a tribute to those who risked their welfare for the Jewish people. Songs of the Wasteland will feature distinguished VAM faculty members Joseph Elworthy (cello), Robyn Driedger-Klassen (soprano), and Mark Ferris (violin), joined by leading Vancouver musicians Mark Fenster (baritone), Francois Houle (clarinet), Lani Krantz (harp), and Kozue Matsumoto (koto).
