Event description

Description

In 1941, troops surrounded the city of Leningrad, in what would be known as the Leningrad Blockade, a siege of more than 2 years, and one that would claim more than 1,000,000 lives. In the midst of this devastation, composer Dmitri Shostakovich worked tirelessly to complete his 7th Symphony, a symphony for the people.

The symphony went on to be played across the front lines of the Russian resistance, and today serves as the sound that lifted an entire city in its darkest hour, instilling renewed faith in our capabilities as individuals, and the dignity and power that art may serve.It is the story of one's right to life, and of all those who stayed behind, who would not be evacuated, and who watched the skies, waiting for anything to lift their spirits and their hearts. It is the story of how, in a moment, their prayers were answered.
