The 2014 film The Monuments Men, starring George Clooney, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett, is the fascinating tale of an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. Now you can learn more about this real-life rescue mission and its unsung heros. Marc Masurovsky, co-founder of the Holocaust Art Restitution Project, Rafael Medoff, director of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies and L. Eden Burgess, attorney at Cultural Heritage Partners, LLC discuss the legacy of the Monuments Men -- actually a uniquely qualified group of men and women from 13 countries -- and the ongoing efforts to return stolen art to its rightful owners. Aviva Kempner moderates. Learn More

The artists were great, but the program was misadvertised,. The only be-bop was in the title of a mediocre piece about 2 dogs. The high point was a fine performance of the Schumann Piano Quartet--but that was hardly in the time line of "Bartok to Be-Bop". The full audience, including quite a number of children, was enthusiastic, so this series in a partnership between the DCJCC and Levine Music (the new title of the Levine School) --and its popular pricing--should be applauded and supported, without the need for misleading titles.
