Violins of Hope
A musical journey from Holocaust to hope, experience the Calgary Phil and Violins of Hope in a unique narrative concert, where restored violins, violas, and cellos, once belonging to Jewish victims of the Holocaust, come to life through stories of injustice, suffering, resilience, and survival. Wherever there was music, there was hope.
This concert is presented in partnership with the Holocaust and Human Rights: Remembrance and Education department of the Calgary Jewish Federation.
The instruments featured in Violins of Hope are brought to Calgary courtesy of KSW Calgary Holocaust Education Fund, the Legacy Fund, and the Calgary Jewish Federation Holocaust and Human Rights: Commemoration and Education.
This concert has an approximate run time of 2 hours and 30 minutes. There is a 20 minute intermission. A pre-concert chat is to be determined.
