Recovered Voices

James Conlon, conductor
Tracy Cox, soprano
Nino Sanikidze, piano
Ory Shihor, piano
with Students of the Colburn Conservatory

It's not often you have the opportunity to discover lost musical treasures. LA Opera music director James Conlon has helped champion a restoration of two generations of music by Jewish composers who were silenced by the Third Reich. Inspired by LA Opera's Recovered Voices program, it's an evening that offers you the chance to bear witness to cultural justice and soar through beauty nearly robbed by history.
