A pianist of international acclaim, Dr. Galit Gertsenzon is a music historian, educator, and advocate for music and musicians of the Holocaust. Born and raised in Israel, Galit studied piano performance and musicology at the Buchman-Mehta School of Music in Tel Aviv. Since 2001, Dr. Gertsenzon has performed music by composers, such as Pavel Haas and Viktor Ullmann, who were murdered in the camps. Audiences around the globe have enjoyed Galit’s music, presented solo and in collaboration, at venues including Carnegie Hall, where she debuted Gideon Klein’s Piano Sonata in 2005 (performing again in 2008), and the Bundestag.

 

For nearly a decade, Dr. Gertsenzon has studied music from the cultural, political, and social aspects of those who make it. Earning her Doctorate in Musical Arts in Piano Performance from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music in 2012, Galit’s research continues to examine the compositions, performances, and musicians of World War II and the Holocaust. Her ethnomusicological insights and applications are featured in the peer-reviewed literature of music, Judaic studies, and higher education. 

 

Dr. Gertsenzon is an Honors College professor at Ball State University (Indiana), where she delivers global studies curricula integrating music and politics. Named the recipient of The Vander Hill Distinguished Honors Educator Award (2018) for her course, Forbidden Sounds: Music of the Holocaust, Galit’s teaching is acknowledged as innovative and inclusive; her pedagogical approach influencing the growth of students and subject matter alike.

 

Dr. Gertsenzon’s sustained scholarly record follows a trajectory of knowledge, appreciation, and remembrance. She delights in sharing her understanding of, and evergreen enthusiasm for, the extraordinary music and musicians of the Holocaust.
