About this performance
The Australian War Memorial (AWM) and the MSO mark 80 years since the liberation of the first extermination camps in 1944 with a special performance of mourning and remembrance.
The AWM’s first musical Artist in Residence, Christopher Latham OAM, curates a program that includes Leonard Bernstein’s Kaddish Symphony, a new work by Elena Kats-Chernin and William Barton, and works by Jewish composers, musicians and artists.
