DETROIT (AP) - Local religious leaders will join together Sunday for the premiere of a musical liturgy dedicated to Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Daniel Gross wrote the piece in tribute to his late grandmother, Masha Gross, the only member of her immediate family to survive the Holocaust.

The composition is called "I Believe: A Shoah Requiem." It features the voices of a Holocaust survivor and a range of religious leaders and choirs.

It'll be performed at Orchestra Hall in Detroit on Sunday.

The 39-year-old Gross is a cantor at Adat Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills. He says "it's up to us to never forget" the Holocaust.

Among those scheduled to take part are the head of the Roman Catholic church in southeastern Michigan and the president of the Michigan Progressive Baptist Convention, among others.
