Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín

Murry Sidlin, dean of the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music, and 120 singers, including about 85 CUA students, faculty and alumni, performed June 30 in a hall in Terezin, a small town about 45 miles northeast of Prague in what is now the Czech Republic. Sidlin led a performance of his award-winning concert/drama "Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezín" on the final day of the international Conference on Holocaust-Era Assets, which was held in Prague.
