Defiance Through Art with Violins of Hope
In a collaboration with Violins of Hope, we celebrate and explore artistic forms of defiance that took place during World War II.
Violins of Hope tells the remarkable stories of violins played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Each violin has its own unique and inspiring story that educates both young and old about the Holocaust in a deeply personal and emotional way.
The program will feature operatic selections from Der Kaiser von Atlantis (The Emperor of Atlantis) and an original piece, Friedl, by composer Craig Bohmler and lyricist Steven Mark Kohn, book by Linda and Michael Grady. The evening culminates with the story of the Bielski Family as told by Assiela Bielski Weinstein.
This event will take place at the Heard Museum's Steele Auditorium located at 2301 North Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004. Seating is general admission and doors will open at 7PM.
