Violins of Hope is a Bay Area initiative using violins once played by Jewish prisoners in World War II concentration camps.  The instruments survive today to teach lessons of history, heroism and hope.  These strings of the Holocaust saved their owners’ lives.  Each sounds its own story.   Gustav Mahler’s niece, Alma Rosé, was the conductor of the orchestra at Auschwitz, making this performance of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, on these very instruments, achingly poignant.

This program is part of Violins of Hope San Francisco Bay Area presented in association with Music at Kohl Mansion, Burlingame, CA.   Learn more at ViolinsOfHopeSFBA.org.
