We very much regret that for technical reasons beyond our control, the Marilyn Herman event scheduled for 6pm this evening (Monday 10 October) has had to be postponed.

Sincere apologies for the short notice, but rest assured that we’ll be in touch as soon as it’s been rescheduled.

On Monday 10 October at 6pm (postponed from 23 June), second generation composer Marilyn Herman will be in conversation with conductor Karin Hendrickson about her two recent compositions. One of them is Rozsa’s Wish, based on the last words of Marilyn’s grandmother, Rachel Rozsa, to her children before she was sent to the gas chambers in Auschwitz. The other is The Angel of Chomutov, and pays tribute to the courage and compassion of a young Czech woman who risked and probably gave her life to hand Marilyn’s father a piece of bread, when aged fourteen, he was on a death march from Buchenwald. The event will include excerpts from a video-recorded recital of these works.
