Silvers to perform at Ukrainian-American Archives Museum

Noreen and Phillip Silver, faculty in the University of Maine School of Performing Arts, will perform a concert entitled “The Music of Resistance” at the Ukrainian-American Archives Museum in Hamtramck, Michigan, on Saturday, March 18, at 6 p.m.

This recital presents works by Jewish and Ukrainian composers, including James Simon, Leone Sinigaglia, Paul Ben-Haim, Mykola Lysenko and Vasyl Barvinsky. All composers on the program were destroyed either professionally or physically by the Russian Tsarist, Nazi or Soviet regimes. 

The Silvers will perform with Ukrainian-American violinist Solmia Soroka, professor at Goshen College. The performers present about the composers’ lives and their music.
