Noreen was thrilled to conduct an incredible Broadway cast in the first look at IRENA, a musical by Megan Cavallari and Kait Kerrigan, in a benefit for the LA Museum of the Holocaust at Temple Emanuel on January 26 & 27 of 2019. Directed by Jonah Platt.
This project was met with an enthusiastic audience and packed house for both performances!
IRENA is an inspired effort to tell the little-known story of Polish Holocaust-era heroine Irena Sendler, who selflessly rescued more than 2500 Jewish children and infants from the Warsaw ghetto at great risk to her own life.
