"We Are Still Here"
The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble
April 7, 2013 at 3:00pm
On Sunday, Apr. 7, 2013 at 3:00 p.m., Temple Emanuel of Great Neck will present the Edith Arams Memorial Concert, “We Are Still Here.” Dedicated to six million who perished, the concert will be performed by the Western Wind Vocal Ensemble. “We attempt to tell the story, through music, of the culture that was lost, the careers dislocated, the barbarism of genocide, and of art, spun like gold, from the dross of the ugliest cruelty of which humans are capable....” Since 1969, the internationally acclaimed vocal sextet, The Western Wind, has devoted itself to the special beauty and variety of a cappella music. The Ensemble's repertoire reveals its diverse background — from Renaissance motets to Fifties rock 'n' roll, from medieval carols to Duke Ellington, from complex works by avant-garde composers to the simplest folk melodies. In addition to maintaining a demanding performance schedule, which has included such venues as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, ArtPark, The Ordway Theater, The Metropolitan Museum, The Western Wind regularly conducts Workshops in Ensemble Singing. As part of its non-profit mission to spread the joy of music to people of all ages, The Western Wind coordinates a highly acclaimed arts-in-education program in the New York City public school system called The Western Wind Goes To School. Since 1989, The Western Wind has produced a series of radio programs that are regularly broadcast by more than one hundred National Public Radio and Public Radio International affiliates throughout the United States.
