Yarilo Music Society presents: Tehillim
Project Tehillim commemorates the 75th anniversary of Salvation of Bulgarian Jews during WWII. In 1943, during the most horrific atrocity, the annihilation of European Jews, Bulgaria defied Hitler and saved all 50,000 of its Jews, a fact still very little known to the world.
The date of the concert coincides with the important date of Bulgarian Enlightenment, May 24th. This was the date when in 1943, the big civil protest, led by the Bulgarian Orthodox leaders, resulted in the cancellation of the second, and final attempt for deportation.
On the program:
Srul Irving Glick – Psalm 47, Psalm 150, Haleluya
Steve Reich – Clapping Music
Steve Reich – TEHILLIM
Conductor: Leslie Dala
