Description:
This week's concert grew out of a shared history between two musicians, and how anti-semitism affected previous generations of composers. Together, they share in that extraordinary creativity in music of loss and great optimism.

Sarah U. of Lubbock won this week's encore contest by correctly ID'ing Bach's "Air on the G String".
