Tuesday (January 27th) is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The Richmond Symphony will mark the occasion with a Holocaust remembrance concert called “Voices of Survival.”
In the second part of Rumbleseat Revival’s performance, you’ll hear When the Sun Goes Down in Harlem (originally by the Harlem Hamfats), as well as Lady Quit Her Husband Unexpectedly (originally recorded by Stovepipe No. 1 in 1924), Gershwin’s Summertime and finally Shalom Secunda’s Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen.
Thursday night (10/30) at 8:00 p.m. at VCU’s Singleton Center, drummer Scott Clark will lead his group The Scott Clark 4tet in a performance of a new work called “Bury My Heart,” a suite that draws on the history of Native Americans and their subjugation by the United States Government. The title for the work comes from Dee Brown’s 1970 book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
