wcfsymphony Artistic Director Jason Weinberger Free
An intimate story of survival and renewal

Meet the Artists

Saturday, November 9 // 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Jason Weinberger almost didn’t exist – both sets of his grandparents barely survived Nazi camps during the Holocaust before relocating to America to begin their lives and families anew. Jason grew up fascinated by his family’s history and as a professional artist developed an interest in the exploration and presentation of music connected to the Holocaust. As a prelude to our powerful Kristallnacht presentation Jason will discuss his grandparents’ stories of survival and perseverance and their connection to music and to his own work in the arts. Coffee and pastries will be available.

Location: Hearst Center for the Arts
304 W Seerley Boulevard, Cedar Falls
