Albert Hurwit: Symphony No. 1 "Remembrance"
Undoubtedly one of inSIGHT’s most successful fundraising events, that featured the music of doctor-turned- composer, Albert Hurwit. The Palm Beach Symphony performed the award-winning Symphony No. 1 "Remembrance", for students, inSIGHT supporters and the public. Through his masterful musical sequences, Dr. Hurwit tells the story of his ancestors' struggles for a new life in a better world.
A wonderful article published in Hartford Magazine, entitled Music of the Soul, shares the story about how a doctor with little musical training was able to compose such a masterpiece.
Dr. Hurwit’s Symphony No. 1 "Remembrance" was awarded first place in the 2009 American Composer Competition.
