A special free concert honoring the memory of the late Prof. Alexander Tamir will take place on Sunday at 8 p.m. at the Eden Tamir Music Center, which he founded. Friends of the brilliant musician, who survived the Vilna Ghetto and composed one of the better known Yiddish Holocaust songs ‘Shtiller Shtiller’ when he was only 11 years old, will perform works by Bach, Chopin, Brahms, Schubert, as well as compositions by Tamir himself. They will be joined on stage by Tamir’s former students.
