Since his retirement in 2006, Kesler has written extensively of his and his late wife’s experiences during World War II. He will also be performing Belarussian and Baltic Jewish music of the 19th and early 20th centuries at the event, along with Susan Hornstein, Donna Messer, David Schlossberg, Deborah Gerber and Tamara Freeman.
