The County Line Community Band will present their Holocaust Remembrance Concert on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. It will take place at the Lampasas Performing Arts Center on the Northeast Lakeview College, 1201 Kittyhawk Rd in Live Oak.

The band will be joined by the 323rd Army Band, stationed on Fort Sam, to present this touching and inspirational concert. Moving stories of music and how it served as a source of strength, faith and hope during the Holocaust are featured.

The story of the composition of Ani Ma’Amin on a train ride to the concentration camp and the secretly defiant performance of Kol Nidrei by the Violinist of Auschwitz are highlighted. Music composed at Auschwitz by imprisoned musicians will be performed and the story of how music was used by the SS to veil the true horror of their purpose are revealed.

This concert will prove to be a discovery of hope and faith through music while serving as a source of heartfelt remembrance for those that perished in the Holocaust. The concert is free and open to the public.
