An insurance executive, a priest, a physician and chemist, a housewife, a prodigy. Each a renowned composer.
Add a psychiatrist internationally recognized as a pianist. And his mother’s fiancé, a promising composer whose life was cut short by the Holocaust.
Our featured soloist is Dr. Robert Berkowitz, winner of the San Diego International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs. Dr. Berkowitz will perform music of Mendelssohn and Hungarian Jewish composer Lajos Delej. The Boston Globe published this story on Dr. Berkowitz and his quest to uncover details of Delej’s short life and his music.
Join us as we explore the passion that drives people to music.
This concert is made possible in part by a generous gift from Peg Moore.
