Acropolis Reed Quartet Presented by Downtown Concert Series
May
13
7:30 PM19:30

Acropolis Reed Quartet Presented by Downtown Concert Series

Hailed for their “infectious energy and intensity”, the Akropolis Reed Quintet takes listeners on extraordinary musical adventures. Akropolis delivers passionate, energized, and unforgettable experiences and will be performing at the historic St. Peter’s Church in downtown Freehold on Saturday, May 13 at 7:30 PM.��
Since being established in 2009 at the University of Michigan, Akropolis has captivated audiences throughout the United States with their ability to play modern compositions as well as their unique and refreshing arrangements of classical music. The unusual combination of saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, oboe, and bassoon requires that much of their music is either newly-composed, or new arrangements of music composed for a different medium. That is taken not as a liability, but rather as a challenge for this group which has commissioned at least 25 new works from composers around the globe. On May 13, Akropolis will present a program called "Under the Influence”. They will perform classical music bearing a wide array of influences, from rock and electronic music to jazz, chant, and folk songs. Each work absorbs the characteristics of a different genre, style, or era, and then creates fresh, relevant music, reflecting upon the original and looking forward.

Jewish Heritage Museum Welcomes Chris Tashima

Jewish Heritage Museum Welcomes Chris Tashima

The Jewish Heritage Museum Welcomes Chris Tashima, Academy Award Winning

Director, and Actor of Visas and Virtue (1997) 

 

 The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County welcomes Chris Tashima, Academy Award winning director, and actor of Visas and Virtue, on Sunday, September 18, 2016 at 2 p.m. Admission is $10 non-members, $8 members. There will be a Question & Answer session after the film screening. 

  
Haunted by the sight of hundreds of Jewish refugees outside the consulate gates, the Japanese diplomat Chiune “Sempo” Sugihara and his wife, stationed in Kaunas, Lithuania at the beginning of World War II, must decide how much they are willing to risk. Inspired by a true story, Visas and Virtue explores the moral and professional dilemmas that the Consul General faces in making a life or death decision: defy his own government’s direct orders and risk his career, by issuing live-saving transit visas, or obey orders and turn his back on humanity. 
 

This Academy Award winning 26-minute portrait, gracefully captured in period black and white by noted cinematographer Hiro Narita, poignantly pays tribute to the rescuer of 6,000 Jews from the Holocaust. 


Chris Tashima is a Los Angeles-based actor and filmmaker. He co-wrote and directed Visas and Virtue, for which he received the Live Action Short Film Academy Award, in 1998. He also portrays the Humanitarian diplomat, Sugihara, onscreen. Tashima also directed, co-wrote, and starred in the award-winning short film, Day of Independence, which depicts the life of Japanese Americans imprisoned in internment camps during World War II. He has appeared in numerous independent feature films, most recently Under the Blood Red Sun, a screen adaptation of the award-winning young adult novel by Graham Salisbury. 
 

For more information or to make a paid reservation (non-refundable), call the Museum at 732-252-6990, or visit www.jhmomc.org.
