History enthusiasts, especially World War II buffs, have a treat in store next month in Nashville as Sir Winston Churchill’s great grandson will deliver one of Churchill’s speeches at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center just before the Nashville Symphony performs the “Violins of Hope” concert featuring a collection of violins owned by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. Randolph Churchill, Sir Winston Churchill’s great grandson and president of the International Churchill Society, will speak at the first conference hosted by the Churchill Society of Tennessee March 23-24, 2018.

The conference itself will be in Franklin, Tennessee (except for the March 23 event at the Schermerhorn). Registration is at https://churchillsocietytn.org/regional-conference.

Tickets are available for the entire conference or for specific events, such as the performance at the Schermerhorn. The Nashville Symphony, led by Giancarlo Guerrero, will perform on the Violins of Hope following Churchill’s speech.

The performance will include John Williams’ Three Pieces from Schindler’s List, Schumann’s Piano Concerto, Jonathan Leshnoff’s Symphony No. 4 “Heichalos” and Barber’s Adagio for Strings.

Randolph Churchill will also speak at the Saturday night conference banquet and will be in Franklin that day as the conference attendees explore Winston Churchill’s intense interest in the American Civil War. The conference is also packed with more than a dozen other speakers and presenters including Guerrero, who will open the conference with a key note speech address on Churchill’s love for music.
