Concert | Book of Ruth: A Memoir Through Music with Met Opera Chorus Artists (online)


In this special concert livestream, learn about Holocaust survivor Ruth Wachner Pagirsky. Alongside beautiful music, Ruth's daughter and Museum Trustee Regina Skyer will share how her mother met hatred with humanity in an incredible story of courage, resilience, and hope. Born in Berlin, Germany, in 1926, Ruth was only 13 years old when the war started in 1939. Fleeing first to the Polish forests, and then a labor camp, Ruth eventually obtained false identification papers that allowed her to hide in the open as a Polish Catholic. For three years, Ruth posed as a mute, hiding her German accented Polish - and her Jewish identity - until she was liberated in 1945. From Partisans Song to Fiddler on the Roof to Madame Butterfly and more, Met Opera Chorus Artists will bring Ruth's incredible story - and love for music - to the museum.

Classical Music | Orchestral Music by Haydn, Rossini, and Mendelssohn


Proof of full vaccination, including the booster, required. Masks are optional. Orchestra of the Bronx; Michael Spierman, conductor; Garry Ianco, guest violinist Program Joseph Haydn (1732 - 1809), Symphony No. 104 Gioachino Rossini (1792 - 1868), L'italiana in Algeri Overture Felix Mendelssohn (1809 - 1847), Violin Concerto The Symphony No. 104 in D major is Joseph Haydn's final symphony and the last of the twelve London symphonies. The work was composed in 1795 while Haydn was living in London, and premiered there at the King's Theatre on May 4, 1795. The premiere was a success, and Haydn wrote in his diary: "The whole company was thoroughly pleased and so was I. I made 4,000 gulden on this evening; such a thing is possible only in England." Rossini wrote L'italiana in Algeri when he was 21 years old, claiming that it took him 18 days to complete the opera. It enjoyed a successful premiere at the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice on May 22, 1823. The music is characteristic of Rossini's style, remarkable for its fusion of sustained, manic energy with elegant, pristine melodies. Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64, is his last concerto. Well received at its premiere, it has remained among the most prominent and highly-regarded violin concertos. Composed between 1838 and 1844, the work was premiered March 13, 1845, and continues to hold a central place in the violin repertoire. New York native Michael Spierman founded the Orchestra of The Bronx in 1969 with the mission of bringing music to people of all walks of life and financial incomes. The Orchestra performs works from all periods, including Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and 20th Century. The unique spirit and level of excellence of the Orchestra makes for some of the most exciting concerts presented in the NYC area. Spierman, also artistic director of the Bronx Opera, was on the music faculty at Hunter College for 38 years, chaired the music panel at the New York State Council on the Arts, and has guest conducted with orchestras in the U.S., England, Bulgaria, and South America.
