Siskiyou Singers Unveil Memorial Work


Many heroes emerged from the Second World War, some more obscure than others. 

Chiune Sugihara is credited with saving thousands of European Jews by letting them escape through Japan.  He is remembered in a choral composition, "Butterfly," by Rogue Valley composer I'lana Cotton

The piece premieres at a concert (April 27 & 28) by the Siskiyou Singers, which commissioned it.  Mark Reppert, artistic director of the group, visits with the composer.
