The Symphonia, a Boca Raton-based orchestra, will play a special Holocaust Remembrance Day concert in tribute to a rabbi and human rights activist.
The concert will be held April 23, 2017 at Roberts Theatre at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton. It will include the Florida premiere of “I Will Not Remain Silent,” a violin concerto composed in tribute to Joachim Prinz, an outspoken rabbi during the rise of Nazism who also became involved in the Civil Rights movement upon immigrating to the United States.
The Holocaust Remembrance Day concert is one of five performances the orchestra has lined up for the 2016-2017 season.
Michael Stern will be guest conductor of the performance. Sharon Roffman, a violinist who created The Prinz Project, a musical tribute to Prinz, will perform a violin solo.
The Symphonia will also play a free concert at Mizner Park Amphitheater on Friday, Aug. 19 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the “Summer in the City” free concert and movie series.
Tickets to the Holocaust Remembrance Day concert range from $50-$84 each and can be purchased at thesymphonia.org or by calling 1-866-687-1201.
