Drs. Bebe and Owen Bernstein Lecture. Join us for our Yom HaShoah Commemorative event this year featuring Keynote Performance by the MOTÝL Chamber Ensemble. Event will also include a candle lighting ceremony and special readings in honor of survivor remembrance. About MOTÝL: The MOTÝL Chamber Ensemble, formed in 2003 and consisting of some of New York's most dynamic young artists, presents music written by composers who were victims of the Nazi regime. Some were fortunate enough to only be forced into exile while the majority lost their lives in the Holocaust. The chamber ensemble is dedicated to the remembrance of these great composers through the performance of their music. It is a versatile chamber ensemble of award winning local artists with growing reputations who have appeared with orchestras and in recitals throughout the world. They play music written for different ensembles by Hans Eisler, Hans Gal, Pavel Haas, Robert Kahn, Gideon Klein, Hans Krása, Viktor Ullmann, Karl Weigl, Kurt Weill and Mieczyslaw Weinberg among others. They also perform music that has been composed specifically to honor the victims of the Holocaust. The ensemble's name, Czech for 'butterfly,' is derived from the poem "The Butterfly" written by Pavel Friedman at the Terezín concentration camp.
