Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín

A Concert to Benefit the Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors. A project of UJA-Federation of New York.

Presented by
The Defiant Requiem Foundation
Selfhelp Community Services
UJA-Federation of New York

Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín tells the story of the courageous Jewish prisoners in the Theresienstadt concentration camp who performed the celebrated Verdi Requiem while experiencing the depths of human degradation. With only a single smuggled score, they performed the famous oratorio 16 times, with conductor Rafael Schächter telling the choir, "We will sing to the Nazis what we cannot say to them." By allocating all proceeds from Defiant Requiem to the Community Initiative for Holocaust Survivors, we will keep our promise to never forget and never abandon those who survived.

Created and Directed by Maestro Murry Sidlin

The performance features Bebe Neuwirth, John Rubinstein, Jennifer Check, Ann McMahon Quintero, Steven Tharp, Wilhelm Schwinghammer, and The Collegiate Chorale.

Honorary Chairs Stuart E. Eizenstat, Brian Eizenstat, Elaine & James Wolfensohn, and Sara Wolfensohn
Sandra & Howard Hoffen, Patti Askwith Kenner, Carol Lee Levin
