“Hatikvah” from Munich
Theme from Schindler’s List
Symphony No. 1, 2nd Mvmt, “Psalm”

On this evening, our Symphony musicians will perform with instruments from the Violins of Hope collection. These instruments were played by Jewish musicians during The Holocaust. They have survived concentration camps and long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience, and survival. Thanks to painstaking restoration by Amnon Weinstein and his son, they now bear testimony to the power of music to lift hearts in the most horrific circumstance. They represent the love and tragedy of many musicians and listeners the destiny of millions of people and the power of music to transcend the darkest hours of humanity.

Programming features world-class soloists and a professional choir joined by outstanding singers from Southern California’s finest music universities. Repertoire includes John Williams “Hatikvah” (Israel’s national anthem) from the film Munich, his moving Theme from Schindler’s List and Ben-Haim’s Symphony No. 1, 2nd Mvmt, “Psalm”.  The finale is none other than the Verdi Requiem, which was performed by the Jewish orchestra and chorus in silent protest during the Nazi’s SS visit at the Terezin camp and ghetto in 1944. With its frightening and instantly recognizable Dies Irae (Day of Wrath/Armageddon), this dramatic and highly operatic requiem will bring you chills.
