Cantor Howard Nevison performed in a special concert to commemorate the Holocaust. “You don’t have to be Catholic to feel moved by being blessed by the Pope”, says Cantor Howard Nevison.” Cantor Howard Nevison performed along with the Royal London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vatican’s Capelle Guilia Choir before the Pope in observance of Yom Hashoah in Rome in April 1994.
This landmark event left its mark on Cantor Howard Nevison, a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music. “The opportunity to perform in Hebrew with an Italian Christian choir before 7000 people, the Pope and 150 survivors of the Holocaust in attendance, was an incredible thing,” marveled Cantor Nevison.
The idea of the Holocaust Memorial concert was totally Pope John Paul’s idea. Cantor Nevison was made to feel welcome at the Vatican. Cantor Nevison said to the Pope, “it’s a true pleasure to sing here in Hebrew.” Then the Pope put his right arm on Cantor Nevison’s shoulder and said, “God has kissed your vocal chords.” I almost melted, said Cantor Nevison!! “
From the standpoint of artistic performance, it was the highlight of my career,” said Cantor Nevison. “To be part of history is something I shall never forget.” A tape and CD is currently available of the Pope John Paul Vatican Holocaust Memorial concert and is titled “New York Cantor Nevison Sings For Pope John Paul at Vatacian, Historic experience.”
