- Open to the public
- Paid event
The Entartete Trio is comprised of three of New York City’s most in demand performers: violist Junah Chung, pianist Eric Huebner, and saxophonist Tim Ruedeman. Their programs are a celebration of the life and music of a generation of composers who were suppressed by the Third Reich. The term “Entartete Musik” (“Degenerate Music”) was used by the Nazi party to label and ban music by composers who were deemed as politically, aesthetically, or racially unacceptable to the Reich. Many of these composers and musicians were interned or murdered in concentration camps, while others were forced to live in exile. Those that survived were often forgotten or unable to resume their careers as a result of the loss of their freedom and curtailed productivity. It is the trio’s mission to bring awareness to this wonderfully rich and diverse repertoire from composers whose voices have been silenced for too long. This is open to the public. $5 general admission, free with William & Mary ID.
