JOIN OUR TEMPLE FAMILY FOR VIOLINS OF HOPE FINAL CONCERT
We’re looking forward to Violins of Hope, a community-wide series of events coming to Fort Wayne on November 9-24 and organized by the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic.
The Temple has reserved a block of seats for the final concert by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic on Saturday, November 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Embassy Theatre, featuring 16 violins that survived the Holocaust and three composers banned by the Nazis.
Members of Congregation Achduth Vesholom may purchase seats in the block by making a reservation with payment to the Temple office at (260) 744-4245 no later than Wednesday, July 17. Cost is $53 per ticket. Seats will be on the main floor, left of center. Checks should be made out to “CAV: The Temple.” We will not order extra tickets, so please make your payment by the deadline to ensure a seat with our Temple family. No refunds will be issued for cancellations.
We anticipate this will be a popular event in the community. The Philharmonic will begin ticket sales to the public in August.
What is Violins of Hope? Violins of Hope is described as “a collection of instruments that tell remarkable stories of the defiance, resilience, and legacy of Jewish musicians during the Holocaust, and of the Israeli violinmaker dedicated to bringing these inspirational Strings of the Holocaust back to life.”
