Voices of Hope

April 16–30, 2021

The life-affirming power of music and the arts during times of crisis comes under the spotlight in Carnegie Hall’s Voices of Hope. This online festival examines the resilience of artists and explores the works they felt compelled to create despite—and often because of—appalling circumstances and human tragedy.

With streamed performances that range from orchestral and chamber works to folk and jazz, Voices of Hope features music that inspires change and lifts the human spirit. The Hall’s Weill Music Institute also engages its educational program participants, inviting songwriters of all ages from across New York City and beyond to create music exploring this theme.

Leading cultural and academic organizations extend the scope of the festival through online programming and events, exhibitions, performances, and film screenings, considering humankind’s capacity for hope, courage, and resilience in the face of the unimaginable.

Jordi Savall: Bal-Kan

Delve into a journey created by Jordi Savall, who has “what could be the broadest vision among any musicians today of how cultures connect and the historical significance of that for a modern, changing world” (Los Angeles Times). From the reign of the Ottoman Turks to the political divisions of the 20th century, Savall calls the Balkans “at one and the same time a rich meeting point and the theater of dramatic confrontations.” Experience the extraordinarily diverse cultural traditions that adapted and flourished during the Ottoman Empire’s regime.

Available through May 31, 2021.

As a nonprofit organization, Carnegie Hall relies on the support of its donors, who play a large part in both the present and the future of the Hall. Your gift today supports our innovative programming and education initiatives that build the audience of tomorrow.
