The Power of Music & the Human Spirit

In Hiding in the Spotlight, a Musical Prodigy’s Story of Survival, 1941-1946, author Greg Dawson writes about his mother, pianist Zhanna Arshanskaya Dawson, a child prodigy who performed for unsuspecting Nazis using a false, non-Jewish identity. Dawson and his mother are part of a moderated discussion with Dr. David Redles, Cuyahoga Community College; Dr. Sean Martin, Western Reserve Historical Society; Kira Seaton, Cuyahoga Community College; and Bruno Tatalovic, Cuyahoga Community College. Music by pianist Emanuela Friscioni (performing part of Chopin’s “Fantaisie Impromptu”) is also included in the evening. The event takes place at 7 p.m. at the Cuyahoga Community College's Eastern Campus. Admission is free. (Niesel)
