Description

OPENING NIGHT

 

Saul Dreier didn’t pick up the drumsticks until he was 89-years-old, but he is motivated by a dream: to perform and share the klezmer music that sustained him during his time in concentration camps. Only a few years later, he and his friend, 87-year-old accordionist/keyboardist Ruby Sosnowicz, form The Holocaust Survivors Band. The duo are on  a mission to share their lust for life and spread peace to the world. Their pursuit takes a new direction as they read about the rise of anti-Semitism and prejudice: the band’s new goal is to return to Poland, where they were born and perform in tribute to their families, and so many others who perished.

 

Live conversation with Director Tod Lending and subjects Saul Dreier and Ruby Sosnowicz with musical performance on Opening Night, Wednesday, November 4, 7:30 pm

 

Available to Massachusetts.
