Holocaust survivor to make symphony debut with Yo-Yo Ma

[from Boston.com website]

The already remarkable life of Holocaust survivor George Horner is about to take another exceptional turn.

The 90-year-old pianist will make his orchestral debut with renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma on Tuesday night at Boston’s Symphony Hall. And they’ll be playing music composed 70 years ago at the Nazi prison camp where Horner was incarcerated.

‘‘It’s an extraordinary link to the past,’’ said concert organizer Mark Ludwig.

The performance will benefit the Terezin Music Foundation, an organization dedicated to preserving the work of artists and musicians killed in the Holocaust.
