The Symphony of Hope is a magnificent collaboration of more than 25 of the world’s greatest composers and dozens of award-winning musicians and vocalists joining together to help Haiti after the terrible January 2010 Earthquake.
The idea for the project came from Chris Lennertz, a longtime friend of Hands Together and Fr. Tom, who has known Fr. Tom since he was a young boy running around the campus of Lafayette College where his dad, Professor James Lennertz, served as the chair of the Government and Law Department. Chris is an Emmy & Grammy-winning composer, who wrote the music for many famous movies, including: Alvin & the Chipmunks, Marmaduke, Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, The Godfather Part II Quantum of Solace, and Horrible Bosses.
According to Chris, “I do believe that people are given talents for a reason, and I thought of all the talented people I knew in the music industry that could hopefully come together and make a difference. Sometimes we can use music where words fail and this symphony is like a musical chain letter from great musicians to everyone out there.”
Chris produced this symphony entirely to benefit Hands Together. The rights and license are owned by Hands Together and all proceeds go to benefit our programs in Haiti.
