The Holocaust Cantata (Songs from the Camps)"
Location: Seelig Theatre of Sullivan County Community College, 3PM & 8PM
"The Holocaust Cantata" premiered at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on March 17, 1998. Found in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archives, all of the songs in the cantata were originally written in Polish by prisoners while incarcerated in Nazi concentration camps. The readings are based on interview transcripts, historical data and the story of Irena Augustynska Kafka. "The Holocaust Cantata" contains no plot; rather each song and reading represents a different person and a different time in the Holocaust experience. Chorus members are featured in speaking roles as well as in solo and duet work.
As part of the performance, the Sullivan County Community Chorus will also present a medley of songs from the musicals Oklahoma! and Les Miserables.
Tickets can be purchased from the Sullivan County Community College Campus Activities Office, open 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday. General admission is $15.00 for seniors and $12.00 for students. Group rates are available. For information, or to purchase tickets, please call (845) 434-5750, Ext. 4303.
