LiberArte is a project of the Terezin Music Foundation (TMF) uniting poets, composers, and performing artists to express the yearning for freedom. TMF commissions musical settings of poems from Liberation (Beacon Press), an anthology of 82 poems by 63 contemporary poets around the world, including thirteen from New England. To date, TMF has commissioned twelve LiberArte works premiered in concert halls and festivals, including Boston Symphony Hall and the Prague International Spring Music Festival.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote of LiberArte; “It will hearten those who have lived long and inspire young readers to strive for understanding, celebration of our differences, and peace among diverse peoples."

Mark Ludwig, director of the Terezín Music Foundation, a renowned Holocaust music scholar and creator of LiberArte, will discuss working with poets, composers, and artists contributing to this project. He will be joined by Massachusetts poets Richard Hoffman and Fanny Howe, and composer David Post in a program of readings, video recordings, and reflections on their collaborative process.
