This year, The Soraya launched Violins of Hope, the center's most ambitious and impactful program to date. In addition, the inaugural Artist in Residence, Niv Ashkenazi will visit 10,000 students in over 50 K-12 schools, playing on one of the famed instruments from the Violins of Hope collection. Niv Ashkenazi will be accompanied by Director of Arts Education Dr. Anthony Cantrell, who will supplement the workshops with lesson plans, study guides, and facilitation. This wide-scale, cross-city partnership that brings recognition to the Violins of Hope collection needs your support. Please consider making an online, tax-deductible gift of any size towards Violins of Hope and include “Violins of Hope” in the Special Instructions field.
