    The Children of Willesden Lane

    April 29, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm


    Set in Vienna in 1938 and London during the Blitzkrieg, The Children of Willesden Lane  tells the true story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist who dreams of a concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. When Lisa is swept up in the Kindertransport to protect her from the Nazi regime, everything about her life is upended except her love of music and her pursuit of that dream.

    Mona Golabek, Lisa Jura’s daughter, tells her mother’s story and performs some of the world’s most beloved piano music in this poignant tribute to her remarkable mother.  Based on the book The Children of Willesden Lane, written by Mona Golabek and Lee Cohen, the performance chronicles one young girl’s story of survival and how the most beautiful music in the world saved her life.

    $10 tickets are available by contacting the Morrison Center at (208) 426-1110 or online at  A limited number of $50 premier-seat tickets (including a post-performance reception with the artist and autographed copy of The Children of Willesden Lane) are available by contacting the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, (208) 345-0304.
