Music of Remembrance - Spring Concert: Gaman

  • Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall 200 University Street Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

WPSR has been supporting an upcoming Music of Remembrance piece by composer Christophe Chagnard called "Gaman," which focuses on the experiences of Japanese-Americans who were incarcerated during World War II. We attended a preview of the piece, and expect it to be a beautiful and moving experience.

The world premiere of Gaman is on Sunday May 20th, and Music of Remembrance is generously donating 4 tickets to WPSR to support our coalition work. The first four people who make a donation to WPSR of $40 or more (the value of the tickets) will receive a ticket! Please email Laura at if you're interested. 

The program also features a selection of Holocaust-era chamber music that speaks to the resiliency and courage of those artists who dared to create in the darkest of times.
