01/27/2020 | Tehorah (טהורה)

Théâtre d'Esch, Luxembourg

In cooperation with MemoShoah Luxembourg, the Foundation of the Memory of the Shoah in Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Delegation of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), the Luxembourg Committee commemorating the Second World War, The National Museum of the Resistence in Luxembourg, The Auschwitz Committee Luxembourg, The Witnesses Of The Second Generation of Luxembourg, the Jewish Community in Esch/Alzette, the Theater in Esch/Alzette and the Municipality of Esch/Alzette.

Tehorah, which means "pure" in Hebrew, is a heartbreaking, promising musical story about war, loss, hope, love and forgiveness. The soirée contains German, Yiddish and Hebrew songs that were composed and written exclusively by Jewish composers and lyricists; but at the same time Tehorah is a historical-poetic portrait. First performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, the concert now commemorates the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau 75 years ago and sends out a message of hope for peace among the nations.

January 27 was proclaimed the International Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust Victims by the United Nations in 2005.

Under patronage of His Royal Highness, the Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg.

Adrienne Haan (Musical Direction and Script)

02/08/2020 | Adrienne Haan sings Kurt Weill

Schauspielhaus Bergneustadt, Germany

In this soirée, Adrienne Haan focuses on the history of the works of Kurt Weill and brings to life his most beloved songs. She begins his story in Berlin during the 1920s and 30s with his famous works of the Weimar years; then on to the time he spent in exile in Paris highlighting some of his lesser known, but glorious French oeuvres. Haan’s witty and entertaining presentation also includes his 1940s American successes. This program is a musical voyage that portrays his songs in their original character and language, all featured in special arrangements crafted for her under the musical direction of Benjamin Schaefer.

Accompanied by a trio or sextet, depending how many sponsors are willing to donate money. For everyone who wants to become a sponsor for this event, please contact Axel Krieger: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
