  • This concert is presented in conjunction with Violins of Hope – a collaboration of the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Jewish Federation, Nashville Ballet, Nashville Public Library, Vanderbilt University and additional partners to be announced.
  • The Violins of Hope are instruments played by Jews during the Holocaust and recently restored by Israeli luthier Amnon Weinstein. The violins will be on view at the Main Library, and our orchestra members will perform on them at this concert.
  • This will be a very moving and powerful concert. Concertmaster Jun Iwasaki will solo on John Williams’ beautiful score from the movie Schindler’s List, and the concert will close with Barber’s emotional Adagio for Strings.
  • History in the Making – The orchestra will record Jonathan Leshnoff’s Symphony No. 4 for future release. Leshnoff’s music is a perfect fit for this concert, as he’s strongly influenced by Jewish spirituality.
  • The great pianist Jonathan Biss returns to perform Schumann’s exuberant Piano Concerto.
