Violins of Hope

We wanted you to be the first to know about Violins of Hope.  Mark your calendar for Tuesday, January 23rd for a performance showcasing Holocaust-era violins, featuring Cincinnati's finest musicians. These violins witnessed the worst of humanity in ghettos and concentration camps, but serve as a symbol of hope and resistance. On January 23rd we will have a morning concert specifically designed for students and a community concert in the evening. Look for our public announcement in early November for more on these special violins, the concert, the diverse community partnerships, additional programming, and how to purchase tickets.

Art & Writing Showcase: We are also inviting middle and high school students to participate in an art and essay showcase in reflection of hope. Using materials of your choice, middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students are asked to create an original piece of art or compose an essay which reflects on the theme of hope, as it relates to the story of Holocaust survivor and Cincinnatian, Henry Meyer (bio included). Students can submit their entries to HHC by Friday, January 5th by 4pm. In recognition of your creativity, a selection of art and essays will be chosen and displayed during our Violins of Hope concert on January 23rd. Click here for showcase information.
