To Be Certain of the Dawn

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.
