Cutting Edge

Donate to Holocaust Composers Fund

This week, the Hugo Kauder Society will hold a campaign: "The Great Give". It's a 36-hour online event on May 3-4 to support important causes and nonprofits. This takes place

May 3rd 8-9pm EST – May 4th at 1-2am London OR

May 3rd & 4th 2-3am EST – 7-8am London

Every donation counts toward the matching fund awards they are vying for, and will assure they continue to unearth, digitize and present new works to the public.

The Society was created in 2002 as a response to composers whose access to the public was denied by the Third Reich. Hugo Kauder was one of these composers, forced to leave his beloved Vienna to continue his career. He fled to New York in order to resume teaching and writing, completing over 300 compositions. Many of these remain unpublished. The society spends its time finding ways to get his music made available to the public. In November 2022 a concert was presented at:

Carnegie Hall
