On May 20, 2022 pianist Marjan Kiepura and his wife Jane Knox-Kiepura, hosted a program at the Exilarte Center in Vienna at the University of Music and Performing Artswhere the exhibit was held. The Program commemorated the careers of Marjan’s parents, the renowned singers Marta Eggerth and Jan Kiepura, who both rose to international stardom in Vienna.

The Exilarte Center was co-founded by Dr. Michael Haas and Professor Dr. Gerold Gruber to honor those composers and artists who were victimized by the rise of Nazism in Europe during the 1930s. This podcast is a reminiscence of that evening and of the music and narrative presented.
