About the Program

Misa Criolla by the late Argentinian composer Ariel Ramirez, inspired by his visit to the Terezin Concentration Camp in the Czech Republic in the 1960s.


I Never Saw Another Butterfly by U.S. living composer Lori Laitman to poems by children of the Terezin Camp and presented at the second full SATA FESTIVAL, held in Arkansas – May 2006.  An appropriate reprise for this program.


Chichester Psalms by the late composer U.S. Leonard Bernstein commissioned by the Cathedral of Chichester in 1965, and incorporating Psalms that evoke the spirit of peace and unity among brothers after the destruction of World War II. A highly inspiring SATA ENCOUNTER finale.
