JCOGS, in conjunction with the Greater Stowe Interfaith Coalition, is honored to present a repertoire of Holocaust music to our community on Holocaust Memorial Day. A commemoration program led by Rabbi Fainsilber and local Stowe clergy will be accompanied by a recital of songs composed in the concentration camps, performed by University of Iowa professors Rachel Joselson, opera singer and Associate Professor of Voice, and Rene Lecuona, professor of piano. The performance is supported by The University of Iowa. This Holocaust Remembrance Day event at JCOGS is free, accessible, and open to the public.
