Iris Piano Trio

Join the Iris Piano Trio and Yiddish vocalist Frieda Enoch for an afternoon of music in commemoration of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The musicians present beautiful music that showcases the power of the human spirit despite the darkest of days. Against all odds, faith, hope and music have always strengthened and uplifted us!

Iris Piano Trio:
The Iris Piano Trio, composed of pianist Jiyoung Oh, violinist Joanna Owen and cellist Lauren Latessa, is the core ensemble of Iris Music Project, representing the organization on stages across the Mid-Atlantic. As individuals, they are talented musicians, holding advanced degrees from Indiana University, Eastman School of Music and Northwestern University. They perform at the Bender JCC, the Charles E. Smith Life Communities, as well as at other venues, bringing joy to the community with their music.

Frieda Enoch:
Frieda Enoch is the Director of Bender JCC’s Coming of Age (COA) – Adult Engagement Program. Both of Frieda’s parents were survivors of the Holocaust and Yiddish was the primary language spoken at home when she was growing up. She sings today in honor of her parents’ legacy.
