Music of Remembrance Presents "Tres Minutos"

MOR Returns To San Francisco!

We’re coming back! After the pandemic forced cancellation of our annual San Francisco concert for two years, we return with a special program on May 22, 2022 at our new home at the magnificent Presidio Theater. Come join us for an absorbing program of works by three Bay Area composers who’ve used their art to address important questions facing us today.

Experience the world premiere of Tres minutos, the struggle of a family separated by a border - the one-act opera we’ve commissioned from composer Nicolas Benavides and librettist Marella Martin Koch with librettist Hector Vega. 

The soulful music of Bay Area composer Shinji Eshima – combined with the vivid imagery of sculptures by Al Farrow as captured by video producer Kate Duhamel – makes an eloquent statement about the frightful consequences of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and religious intolerance of all kinds.  

The California premiere of Sahba Aminikia’s Stormy Seas tells the true stories of five child boat refugees – from Nazi Germany, communist Cuba, war-torn Vietnam, Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and an Ivory Coast orphanage – who braved perilous waters in search of safe shores and new lives.
