'Defiant Requiem' Screening and Discussion at SU April 30

By SU Public Relations

SALISBURY, MD---In anticipation of Holocaust Remembrance Day, Salisbury University hosts a screening and discussion of the documentary film Defiant Requiem 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, in Fulton Hall Room 111, the Herman van Apeldoorn Film Center.

Dr. Maarten Pereboom, dean of the Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts, moderates the event, illuminating the story of how Prague musician Rafael Schächter led multiple performances of Verdi’s Requiem at the Terezin concentration camp during World War II. Sixty years later, Maryland-based conductor Murry Sidlin led a commemorative performance at the site. Both stories demonstrate the power of music to sustain human spirits in the most challenging circumstances.

Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6450. 

Those planning to park on campus must register in advance for a free parking pass.
