Get Your Tickets Now for Violins of Hope

Co-sponsored by Congregations Beth Am, Etz Chayim and Kol Emeth

Musicians have been sharing melodies for centuries, with no regard to political and national boundaries. Irish sailors brought melodies to sea ports in Ukraine; Turks, Roma and Jews shared common songs, and Roma music has origins in India. In "Along the Trade Route," we present internationally renowned Bay Area musicians, steeped in seemingly separate cultural musical traditions, with an exciting and surprising common vision of musical sharing.

"Along the Trade Route Concert" features violinists Cookie Segelstein (Klezmer), Emmanuel During (Middle Eastern), Hemmige V. Srivatsan (South Indian) and Suzy Thompson (Americana). Each violinist will be performing on a violin once owned and played by a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp, now repaired and repurposed as an instrument of peace, social justice and hope.

Tickets are now available for purchase online.
