A SILENCED LEGACY: Honoring the Music and the Musicians


A Silenced Legacy is a special chamber concert featuring select members of the Arizona Musicfest Festival Orchestra, who hold meaningful personal ties to musicians of the Holocaust.  From family relatives to master teachers, all of the musicians to be honored used music as a means to persevere as well as to bring harmony and solace to themselves and others.  Through performances of music, both solemn and joyful, as well as through personal reflection, A Silenced Legacy will commemorate the legacies of those who perished and those who survived.

This special chamber concert serves as Arizona Musicfest’s third and final concert program featuring the Violins of Hope, a collection of violins recovered from the Holocaust.
