“Symphony of Hope” is a musical fundraising project which was originally designed to help the people of Haiti in their desperate time of need. A year after the terrible earthquake which has destroyed the lives of thousands of Haitians, the need for assistance is even greater than ever. “Symphony of Hope” is a collaboration by 25 of today’s leading Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning composers to benefit Haiti Earthquake Relief. The “Symphony of Hope” begins with an original Haitian melody, then each composer contributes an additional 8-32 bars of music to the piece and then passes it along to the next composer. This is symbolic in the way that one lending hand passes on to another lending hand and so on and eventually a beautiful outcome is achieved.

The orchestral piece is currently on track to be recorded later this spring, with everyone donating their time – the composers, orchestrators, copyists, musicians, scoring stage technicians, etc. Once the orchestral piece has been recorded, those finished tracks will be given to a range of producers, artists, and remixers, in order to create additional contemporary works based on the symphony in order to fill out the album and provide an eclectic listening experience.

Plans for a DVD documenting the making of the piece as well as a full scale concert are also underway. All proceeds from the sale of the album and any related materials, such as videos, concerts, etc., will go directly to the people of Haiti and are considered tax deductible through our partner charity, "Hands Together".
