"DO NOT FORGET ME" is a multi-media concert tribute to artistic creativity and survival
in Terezín, featuring
The Boston Children's Chorus
This vibrant chorus will join Terezín survivor and Ela Weissberger, who sang in the original Terezín productions, to perform the finale of the children's opera Brundibar: "We won over the tyrant mean."
The acclaimed BCC harnesses the power and joy of music to unite our city's diverse communities and inspire social change. These singers transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Through intensive choral training and high-profile public performance experience (locally, throughout the U.S., and around the world), they learn discipline, develop leadership skills, and proudly represent the city of Boston as ambassadors of harmony.
The BCC was founded by Hubie Jones, a civic leader who for almost five decades has labored to address the social problems facing Boston's underserved children and communities. The Chorus includes almost 500 singers representing over 50 of Boston's urban and suburban neighborhoods participating in twelve different choirs in five Boston locations: the South End, Allston-Brighton, South Boston and Dorchester.
The BCC has magnificently performed on the TMF stage on several occasions, most recently premiering four TMF LiberArte commissions on our joint "Liberation" tour in Prague-Terezín and Berlin in the summer of 2015.
