Meira Warshauer’s Bracha Part of Holocaust Remembrance Day Program on April 7 at Tree of Life Congregation in Columbia, South CarolinaPosted by s21concerts in Concert Announcement
Meira Warshauer’s Bracha for violin and piano will be presented by violinist William Terwilliger and the composer at the piano on Sunday, April 7 – 7:00 PM as part of the Yom HaShoah Holocaust Remembrance Day Community Memorial Service at Tree of Life Congregation, 6719 North Trenholm Road in Columbia, South Carolina. This event is sponsored by The Columbia Jewish Federation and the Yom HaShoah Committee.
The composer writes about the piece, “Bracha is a musical interpretation of the Jewish concept of blessing. The Hebrew word, bracha, is related to breicha, which means pool of water, or flowing stream. In this composition, it is interpreted as a stream of Divine goodness flowing downward into the world.” Read her full notes at http://www.meirawarshauer.com/NEW/pages/Program_notes/Bracha_notes.html and hear an excerpt of the piece at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/meiraani.
