Produced in collaboration with the Bosnia Memory Project, this powerful concert weaves personal narrative with Sevdah, the folk music tradition of Bosnia, to tell the stories of our Bosnian neighbors in St. Louis.

The concert includes a performance of Albinoni's Adagio in G minor, a piece played by Vedran Smailović, “the Cellist of Sarajevo,” at multiple sites of destruction during the siege of Sarajevo to honor those who lost their lives. Doors open at 7pm, and no tickets or reservations are required.
