Violins of Hope brings together four symphonic orchestras, a major heritage museum and The Soraya, one of Los Angeles' leading performing arts centers, to help educate and connect audiences - through music and culture - about one of the most impactful events of recent history.

These instruments will come to Los Angeles for the first time March 22 to April 26, 2020 for a month-long series of concerts, exhibits, and student educational programming; the collection has become widely known featured in the documentary, Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust, and a book Violins of Hope: Violins of the Holocaust-Instruments of Hope and Liberation in Mankind's Darkest Hour.

Thor Steingraber, Executive Director of The Soraya, said "Our 2019-2020 takes its inspiration from Violins of Hope, this season's signature event, which celebrates the triumph of the human spirit. It is a season of hope, renewal and exploration which includes jazz great and MacArthur fellow Jason Moran, with New West Symphony, performing his score for Ava DuVernay's Selma, evoking Dr. Martin Luther King amidst an infusion in a season of Beethoven. Hecho in Las Americás continues our exploration of 'Music Knows No Borders.' We also have some of the great performing artists of our time - Quinteto Astor Piazzolla, Bettye Lavette, Chucho Valdés, Joshua Bell, Kurt Elling, and the Count Basie Orchestra celebrating Ella Fitzgerald.

"Finally, we are working with LA's own Randy Newman to bring his legendary musical, Faust, back to the stage next spring. We look forward to welcoming our longtime patrons and new audiences to The Soraya, our beautiful and inviting artistic hub on the CSUN/Northridge campus."
