The Violins of Hope: Strings of the Holocaust, a collection of more than 60 restored instruments played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust, visited Louisville for 10 days of exhibits and events in October 2019, and was made possible by a consortium of partner organizations and presented by the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence. This is a continuation of that legacy.

Join the Filson Historical Society for the premiere of Violins of Hope Louisville: Connecting the Past to the Present, a film by Michael Fitzer and 180 Degrees Film Productions. The premiere will feature music by the NouLou Chamber Players.

Violins of Hope Louisville Continuing Legacy is a partnership program of Kentucky Performing Arts, and the Filson Historical Society, with support from the Community Foundation of Louisville.
