    Fantastic and Moving

    The speaker was good, but the violin soloist was fantastic. Hannah Tarley played each of the five Holocaust survivor violins on display, and picked songs she felt matched the instrument’s history. Not only did she choose evocative pieces, she also played them magnificently. In the intimate venue at the CJM, it felt like—and sounded like—having a personal audience with Itzhak Perlman. There may have been a dry eye in the house, but not too many. Catch this unforgettable program if at all possible and don’t miss seeing the violins of hope. Never forget!
