Violins of Hope Arrive in Nashville
The Violins of Hope are a collection of restored instruments played by Jewish musicians during The Holocaust. These instruments have survived concentration camps, pogroms and many long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience and survival.
The Nashville Symphony has brought the Violins of Hope to Nashville to facilitate a citywide dialogue about music, art, social justice and free expression.
Covenant Capital Group Managing Partner and Co-Founder Rick Scarola and his wife Lynn are proud to have partnered with The Nashville Symphony and the Jewish Federation & Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee to serve as funding partners for the program‘s multi-faceted Nashville run that extends through October.
The events kicked off over the weekend with the Nashville Symphony and Guerrero conducting the Violins of Hope. The centerpiece of the Nashville program is a free Violins of Hope exhibition at the Nashville Public Library that runs March 26th until May 28th.
The sound, presence and stories of these instruments will drive the creation of music, visual art, theater, public conversation, interfaith dialogue, readings and educational activities throughout Middle Tennessee.
