To mark the opening of Jewish Book Week 2014, award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook will be previewing her new song cycle - Drawing Life, a Jewish Music Institute (JMI) production inspired by a collection of poems and drawings made by children imprisoned in Terezin. This powerful new classical work was commissioned to mark the 70th anniversary of the commencement of the camp's liquidation by the Nazis. The song cycle with live music and video will be followed by a discussion of the work's genesis and ideas, when Pook will be joined on stage by JMI's Artistic Director Sophie Solomon, performers and a camp survivor. - See more at: http://www.jewishbookweek.com/events/drawing-life-preview-performance-discussion#sthash.bRbdaCot.dpuf
