The Holocaust not only took a horrific toll on human life, it also produced long-lasting cultural erasure. Jewish composers, and even those performing in non-German styles, had their music banned. Some of these composers died in the death camps. Others survived, but their music has been lost.

Kennesaw State University music professor Laurence Sherr has dedicated much of his musical career to highlighting these erased composers.

Local pianist John Burke woke up early one morning last week to the news that he had been nominated for a Grammy for the Best New Age Album for his album "Orogen."

He came by WABE earlier this week and spoke with “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes about this recent accomplishment.

Burke is an independent artist. In the current post-record label music industry, he finds himself managing all his own promotions and touring, among other responsibilities.
