On January 23rd and 24th at the Historic Tennessee Theatre, more than 30 violins once silenced by the Holocaust, will sound again. These Violins of Hope, will be the center of two performances featuring the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and Hallerin Hilton Hill.
Two evenings of poignant music, interwoven with powerful experiences of Holocaust survivors and the incredible stories of the violins, will provide an emotional journey not to be missed. Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust will be a once in a lifetime performance event that will prove that hope can be found in the darkest of times.
The Knoxville Symphony is proud to be a partner in bringing Violins of Hope to Knoxville. There is a saying that...for the heights and depths no words can reach, God gave us Music, the soul's own speech. The stories of human suffering and ultimately hope will be expressed through each of these incredible instruments. Members of the public will have the opportunity to hear each individual instrument featured and played by soloists from within the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
