The Hartt School's honors chamber ensemble Performance 20/20 presents "A Concert of Hope" immediately following Amnon's Journey, the final presentation of the 2011 Hartford Jewish Film Festival on Tuesday, April 5 at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $20 and available from the JCC Box Office at 860.231.6316. For further information about this film and concert or any aspect of the Festival, visit www.hjff.org.
This concert continues the tradition of collaboration between Hartt and the Mandell JCC that began with last year's Festival and continues this year through Hartt's performances for the JCC's Second Mondays series of arts programming.
Inspired by the music featured in Amnon's Journey, Hartt's performers have created a beautiful and moving tribute to the Jewish musicians whose voices were forever silenced. This concert features works by Ernest Bloch, Max Bruch, Joel Engel, Felix Mendelssohn, and Sergei Prokofiev.
The musical grand finale takes place in the Herbert Gilman Theater, followed by a dessert reception.
