Herbert Zipper, ConductorThe extraordinary story of Vienna born musician and conductor Herbert Zipper who survived Dachau, Buchenwald, and a Japanese concentration camp to become one of the great music educators of the world, continuing at 92 to bring music to the inner city schools of America.

In Dachau, Zipper organized secret concerts using makeshift instruments. He learned the lesson that music and the arts are essential to the very existence of life. For the last half of the 20th century, Zipper has pioneered in bringing professional orchestras into America's inner city schools.

Awards & Honors
"We see in the attentive eyes of his pupils that Herbert Zipper teaches more than music. Never Give Up is an elegant tribute to the indomitable character of this 92 year old composer and conductor"
