Music of Remembrance: Stormy Seas
MOR's second Benaroya Hall concert features Sahba Aminikia’s Stormy Seas, telling the stories of young boat refugees from five countries who braved perilous waters in search of safe shores. We presented the world premiere of this MOR commission in one of last year’s online programs, and now you can experience it in the compelling immediacy of our live stage. Rodas Recordada, by Sid Robinovitch, recalls the island of Rhodes’ once-thriving Sephardic Jewish community and reveals a surprising connection with Seattle. Plus a pair of haunting songs based on Ladino poems, and music by three Dutch composers touched by the Holocaust.
