We invite you to join us in commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day for a powerful and moving performance by Sonia Lazar. A violinist with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Lazar will perform on a violin from the Violins of Hope collection.
Founded by luthier Amnon Weinstein and his son Avshi, Violins of Hope is a collection of instruments that belonged to victims of the Holocaust. Donated and lovingly restored, these violins connect people through music and tell the stories of their original owners.
As part of this program, Shelley Faintuch, former Director of Community Relations for the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, will discuss the significance of these violins and how some of them were discovered.
The event is free to attend, and all are welcome.
