Trinity United Methodist to host Violins of Hope

Posted: Friday, October 11, 2019

The Violins of Hope program is coming to Trinity United Methodist Church, on Sunday, November 17. The program, narrated by Jane Gerardot, will start at 4 p.m. and run for approximately an hour, including a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

Through an unprecedented collaboration between the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Violins of Hope will be brought to Fort Wayne this fall. The violins portray stories of courage in the face of oppression and persecution during the Holocaust by focusing on the themes of defiance, resilience, and legacy.

Painstakingly restored by master Israeli violin maker Amnon Weinstein, fifty instruments associated with the camps and ghettos of the Holocaust will be played and displayed throughout the community from November 9 to 23.

The church is located at 530 Guilford Street, and has handicap accessible parking at the west entrance, door #7. The presentation is free and all are welcome.
