Violinist Adam Millstein and pianist Dominic Cheli will perform a one-hour selection of concert music by composers who shaped the sound of film music. All of the composers were from different parts of Europe and were forced into exile following the rise of the Third Reich due to their Jewish Heritage. The musical works and composers will be introduced from the stage with a guided musicological/historical “tour” by Mr. Millstein. All of the composers ended up working in Hollywood with the exception of Mieczysław Weinberg, who wrote prolifically for film in the Soviet Union. This event is nearing capacity. However, there are always no-shows for free events, and we have never had to turn away a patron. Individuals without tickets can wait in the standby line and will be allowed into the hall 10 minutes before the performance, if space is available.This performance will be livestreamed.
