Please join us at this concert to hear children’s poetry from the Holocaust reflected in musical compositions by young composers, including Hakafa’s own Jasper Bickers. The compositions will be performed by the Ton Beau String Quartet. Hakafa member and child survivor of the Holocaust, Doris Fogel, will be the program narrator, and Rabbi Elder will give the address.
We are hosting this program along with Winnetka Congregational Church. Admission is free.
In high demand as a guest clinician, Zachary has taught and lectured all over North America at conferences, institutes, and workshops. His research has been published in the American Suzuki Journal and the American String Teacher. In 2015, Dr. Ebin founded the Silent Voices Project (www.silentvoicesproject.com). In the project, young composers write chamber music based on poems written by children during the Holocaust. The Silent Voices Project will give its third concert and release its first recording this fall.
Zachary Ebin has remained active as a performer. He recently recorded the forgotten works of Ukranian composers with pianist Maria Dolnycky. For the past four years, he has served as the artistic director of the Belfountain Music Festival in Caledon, Ontario.
