May 16, 2010, 1:00pm
The MOTYL Chamber Ensemble, formed in 2003, performs music by composers whose lives were cut short or radically transformed by the Holocaust. Some of the composers were fortunate enough to only be forced into exile while the majority lost their lives in the Holocaust. The ensemble's name, Czech for 'butterfly,' is derivedfrom the poem "The Butterfly" written by Pavel Friedman at the Terezin concentration camp.
