Join The National WWII Museum and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra for a once-in-a-lifetime performance on Saturday, January 28, 2023, in US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center. This culminating event will feature a concert of forbidden music—music of Jewish composers that were banned by the Nazis during World War II—and one of the musicians will play a violin that belonged to a young Jewish boy who fled Poland and lost all of his family members during the war.
Carlos Miguel Prieto, Conductor
Philippe Quint, Violin
Weill: Suite from The Threepenny Opera
Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto in E Minor
Williams: Theme from Schindler's List
Chaplin: Smile (Theme from Modern Times)
