The Sousa Mendes Foundation and the Utah Youth Orchestras and Ensembles present a performance in the Mormon Tabernacle of the oratorio Circular 14: The Apotheosis of Aristides by Neely Bruce. This free concert, conducted by the world-renowned choral conductor Barlow Bradford, will be held on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day of 2018. The event is part of the Temple Square Concert Series.

The piece tells the dramatic true story of the Holocaust hero Aristides de Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese Consul General in Bordeaux, who saved thousands of lives in the spring of 1940 by issuing Portuguese visas to refugees desperate to escape Nazi-occupied France. From Portugal these refugees boarded ships to freedom in the United States and other final destinations.

This concert will feature a number of well-know soloists, the University of Utah Chamber Choir, the University of Utah A Cappella Choir, and eight high school choirs from across the state.

Additionally, the Mayor of Salt Lake County, Ben McAdams, will deliver opening remarks. In attendance will be Dr. Daniel Mattis, a Sousa Mendes visa recipient living in Utah, and two of Sousa Mendes’s grandsons: Gerald Mendes and Aristides Mendes, one of whom also lives in Utah.

Sponsors include: The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation, the Lawrence T. and Janet T. Dee Foundation, the John and Marcia Price Family Foundation, Zions Bank, the United Jewish Federation of Utah, and the LDS Church.
