Music Department Chair Wins National Book Award

"Violins of Hope," authored by Department of Music Chair James Grymes, has earned a National Jewish Book Award, considered the most prestigious honor in the country for Jewish-themed books.

A stirring testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of music, "Violins of Hope" tells the remarkable stories of violins played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust and of the Israeli violin maker dedicated to bringing these inspirational instruments back to life. Grymes was inspired to write "Violins of Hope" when the College of Arts + Architecture brought 18 of the instruments to Charlotte for a series of exhibitions, performances, lectures and films in 2012. This was the only time the Violins of Hope have appeared in the Western hemisphere.

Awarded annually by the Jewish Book Council since 1950, National Jewish Book Awards are conferred on books of significant merit in more than 18 Jewish-themed categories. "Violins of Hope" is the 2014 winner for books about the Holocaust.
