Ginkgo trees near the center of the atomic blasts in Hiroshima survived the inferno because of their resilience and deep roots, sprouting new leaves within days. The survivor trees have come to represent the Endurance of Hope.

MOR’s roots in our community are deep, our resilience strong. But we need your help to sprout new leaves. By supporting our mission, you’re making it possible for us to tell stories of hope and courage that are so needed in today’s world. MOR performs music that matters – now more than ever.

OUR THREE FUNDS SUPPORTED BY THE GALA

Our 2020/21 Online Gala Celebration is raising money for three key funds in support of our work at Music of Remembrance:
• Our Artist Fund helps us support local musicians.
• The Online Programs Fund supports recording concerts and programs.
• The New Commissions Fund supports MOR original musical programs.

► ARTIST FUND
By supporting our work, you’re also assisting our extraordinary performers and sustaining our arts community at this challenging time. We are honored that we get to play a small role in supporting musicians and composers. Most professional musicians make their living with live performances. Those performances have simply disappeared. So, we are so excited that we are bringing concerts back even if they are virtual for now. The Artist Fund helps us do this.

► ONLINE PROGRAMS FUND
recordings permit performances to span not just distance, but time. Creating music that spans the years — pulling the past into the present and the future, is the mission of Music of Remembrance. And so, we are inspired to make the most of our move to digital events. We have launched a new streaming channel and an Online Programs Fund to reach a broader audience.

► NEW COMMISSIONS FUNDS
MOR has commissioned pathbreaking new works to share untold stories, like the Nazi persecution of homosexuals in Jake Heggie’s ‘For a Look or a Touch’, or the tales of children seeking refuge across the waters — Stormy Seas by composer Sahba Aminikia. They also create a lasting legacy that touches people across the years and around the world. Music of Remembrance has produced more than thirty original works — a tremendous undertaking for a small organization. Major new works cost $25,000 to $50,000 each. Our New Commissions Fund plays a key role in making this commitment possible.

Music of Remembrance fills a unique role throughout the world by remembering the Holocaust through music. With concert performances, educational programs, recordings, and commissions of new works by some of today’s leading composers, MOR honors those of all backgrounds who found the strength to create even in the face of suffering, and those who had the courage to speak out against cruelty. We tell stories that communicate urgent lessons for today, and we look beyond the Holocaust itself to the experience of others who have been excluded or persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.
