On Sunday, October 13, at 3:00 p.m., the Florida State University Symphony Orchestra will present a concert in partnership with the Holocaust Education Resource Council entitled "Music of Resistance." Inspired by the award-winning book by FSU alum James Grymes, Violins of Hope, this concert presents music that demonstrates the human will to resist against tyranny. The orchestra will perform music by Pavel Haas, Mieczysław Weinberg, Max Bruch, Bohuslav Martinu, and Dmitri Shostakovich. Cellist and FSU faculty member, Greg Sauer, will be the cello soloist for the Weinberg Cello Concerto and the Kol Nidre of Bruch. Each work illustrates a different side of artistic resistance to tyranny and human rights abuses, while demonstrating the great human courage and the will to overcome the seemingly impossible.
The University Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of Dr. Alexander Jimenez, professor of conducting and director of orchestras.
