24 Aug Check out The Prinz Project!
The Prinz Project is a curriculum guide to accompany I will Not Remain Silent, a new violin concerto by Bruce Adolphe, which was premiered by Sharon Roffman with Michael Stern conducting the IRIS orchestra on January 24, 2015 in Germantown, Tennessee. This piece is inspired by the life of Rabbi Joachim Prinz (1902-1988) an immigrant from Nazi Germany and an American civil rights activist, who bridged the Holocaust and the Civil Rights Movement, transcending race and religion into a universal fight for freedom and human dignity. The online curriculum is intended to supplement live in-school classroom lessons, to serve as a guide for teachers and an entry point for students (and audiences) to examine the life and message of Rabbi Prinz within the historical context of the Holocaust and the Civil Rights movement; to illuminate modern day struggles against violence and discrimination; and ultimately to explore the capacity of music, art and literature to express our common humanity and change the world!
