Watch: The Makers and Stars of 'Joe's Violin' in Conversation
Friday, September 23, 2016
The award-winning short documentary Joe's Violin, tells the story of 91-year-old Joseph Feingold, a Polish Holocaust survivor who donated his violin of 70 years to the WQXR Instrument Drive in 2014. That violin would go on to change the life of 12-year-old Brianna Perez, a schoolgirl from the nation’s poorest congressional district, and unexpectedly, also Feingold's.
At 7:30 pm on Friday, Sept. 23, watch a performance by some of the young musicians featured in the film, including Perez, as well as a conversation with the filmmakers and Feingold. WQXR's Jeff Spurgeon hosts the evening.
Before the talk, you can watch Joe's Violin on The New Yorker's website.
