The Nov. 15 Friday Night Dialogues will share the story of acclaimed composer and musicologist Arthur O. Chitz.

Acclaimed composer and musicologist Arthur O. Chitz’s life was tragically cut short during the Holocaust and his musical legacy erased from history. On Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. at the library’s Friday Night Dialogues, Shelter Islander Paulann Sheets, widow of Chitz’s son, Hermann, will speak on the journey to bring his works back into the public sphere some 60 years after he was believed to have perished in a concentration camp near Riga, Latvia.
