Intonations: Music of Jake Heggie

Music of Remembrance has made the decision to cancel this concert for the safety of our audience, artists and staff. We are currently reaching out to ticket holders with information about their options. If you have purchased tickets and haven’t heard from us by April 10, please contact us at

We look forward to having you with us next season when we return to presenting music that matters, now more than ever. We send our thoughts to you and your loved ones at this critical time.

A rare double bill showcasing the music of Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer. "Intonations: Songs from the Violins of Hope" imagines how those historic Holocaust instruments would tell their own stories. In this Washington premiere, violin soloist Mikhail Shmidt and mezzo soprano Laura Krumm join the Music of Remembrance string quartet. "For a Look or a Touch," the first major work ever to explore the Nazi persecution of homosexuals, is based on the true story of two idealistic young gay men in 1930s Berlin whose lives and love were torn apart under Nazi rule. With rising star baritone Jarrett Ott and actor Curt Branom.
