A powerful afternoon of sweeping emotions will embrace audiences with ‘Holocaust Cantata: Songs of the Camps’ by Donald McCullough, sung by the First Congregational Church Senior Choir of Sharon with additional community volunteers featuring special guest performances on Sunday, April 6 at 3 p.m. This afternoon concert contains songs and readings that first premiered at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts on March 17, 1998.

Originally in Polish and written by prisoners who were incarcerated in Nazi concentration camps, these stirring songs in ‘Holocaust Cantata’ were found in the Aleksander Kulisiewicz collection of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archives. The songs have no plot, but each song in ‘Holocaust Cantata’ delivers personal insight into one of the most harrowing periods in history.

The post-concert reflection will be led by FCC Pastor Steve Alspach and Temple Israel Rabbi Barry Starr. With music direction by Brett Hinkel, 'Holocaust Cantata: Songs of the Camps' pays tribute to the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. This free concert will take place at First Congregational Church, 29 North Main Street in Sharon, Massachusetts. A brief post-concert reflection will take place and refreshments will be served. Free will donations will be collected for the Ilsa Marks Food Pantry in Stoughton, Massachusetts at the event.
