Violins of Hope
Violins of Hope Richmond presents a chamber concert played on violins recovered and restored by Israeli violinmaker, Amnon Weinstein, who has devoted the last 20 years to locating and restoring original violins of the Holocaust as a tribute to those who were lost.
From August 4 – October 24, more than 20 of these exquisite instruments will be on exhibit at three Richmond Museums: The Virginia Holocaust Museum, the Virginia Museum of History and Culture, and the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia. We are lucky to be able to bring them and their music and story to Hampton Roads!
The October 6th concert will present a series of pieces that reflect the stories of these resilient instruments, the history of the Holocaust, and its important lessons. The music and stories combine to give us a powerful new lens through which to view the important role of music in Jewish life, before, during, and after the Holocaust, and to express the themes of spirit, resistance, resilience, and hope. We hope you will join us!
Tickets $25, students under 25 are $10.
