Jewish Music Institute: Drawing Life

Jewish Music Institute (JMI) celebrates its 30th anniversary with Celebration Gala Performance of Drawing Life, a JMI production composed by Jocelyn Pook and inspired by a collection of poems and drawings made by children imprisoned in Terezín. The song cycle is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the commencement of the camp's liquidation by the Nazis.
