The Suitcase at Memphis Jewish Historical Society

October 1st, 2018
THE JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF MEMPHIS AND THE MID-SOUTH, in conjunction with the Tennessee Holocaust Commission, presents THE SUITCASE by Tim Lorsch. 

THE SUITCASE is a one-man show that blends narrative storytelling with original music to share the history of a German Jewish family's life before World War II and their remarkable survival of the Holocaust.

Tim Lorsch began playing the violin at age seven. Being the first born son of immigrants from the land of Bach, Beethoven, and Handel the emotional scope of music he grew up hearing and learning is indeed in his blood. A Nashville based producer, session player, arranger and songwriter, Tim has the rare ability to respectfully serve the story being told with finite musical insight and expertise. Over his 40 year career, he has produced critically acclaimed records, played on thousands of recordings,
and made contributions to Grammy and Emmy award winning projects. Geared to create, Tim has recently learned a new craft ‐ looping classical string instruments. Using technology and storytelling, he has developed a one man show, which blends spoken narrative with looped instruments to share his family’s survival of Nazi Germany. The road ahead is what you make it. Tim Lorsch makes beautiful well‐crafted roads.

Admission is free.
