Lincoln Choral Artists is honored to be able to bring to Lincoln a performance of composer Stephen Paulus's moving work commemorating the Holocaust and honoring its victims and survivors, “To Be Certain of the Dawn.” The piece was originally commissioned by the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis as a gift to the Jewish community, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the freeing of Holocaust survivors and to help teach an important lesson: the prevention of future genocide is in the hands of today's children.
For its performance, Lincoln Choral Artists will join forces with Nebraska Wesleyan University Choir, University of Nebraska at Omaha Chorale, UNO Chamber Singers, South Central Nebraska Children's Choir (Hastings), Central Community College Choir (Columbus), Titan Singers from Norris High School, and a full orchestra.
