The East Bay Holocaust Education Center of Pleasanton is honored to be hosting the world-famous Violins of Hope in the San Francisco East Bay in January-February 2023. Violins of Hope is a collection of restored violins that were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. These instruments have survived concentration camps, ghettos, pogroms, and many long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience, and survival.
Free exhibits will be open to the public from January 31-February 12, 2023 at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore, and at free educational assembly concerts for students and teachers during the daytime at all Tri-Valley middle schools and high schools between January 31-February 10, 2023.
The music of violins will also come alive again in Livermore with concerts at the Bankhead Theater on February 5, 6 and 7, 2023 performed by Livermore-Amador Symphony (LAS), conducted by Lara Webber with special performances by violinist Lindsay Deutsch and cellist Peter Bedrossian. Avshi Weinstein, co-founder of Violins of Hope, will provide stories for several of the instruments. For more information and to purchase tickets, check out www.ebhec.org/violins.
