Voices of Hope: Artists in Times of Oppression
The resilience of artists and the life-affirming power of music and the arts during times of oppression and tyranny come under the spotlight in Carnegie Hall’s festival Voices of Hope: Artists in Times of Oppression. This festival examines the role of artists during times of injustice and explores the works they felt compelled to create.
With 16 concerts at the Hall that range from orchestral and chamber music to folk music and contemporary jazz, Voices of Hope features music that served to inspire change and raise the human spirit. In Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, songwriters of all ages will also explore these themes.
Across New York City, public programming that includes exhibitions, performances, talks, and film screenings at leading cultural and academic institutions will further extend the festival’s scope.
Join us for an exploration of humankind’s capacity for hope, courage, and resistance in the face of the unimaginable.
