When the first European lockdowns began last March, the multi-talented British violinist Daniel Hope immediately sprang to action with a DIY show called Hope@Home.

Hope -- who has experience writing, producing and broadcasting - seemingly overnight created a high-production, high-quality show which he broadcast every single day six weeks from his living room in Berlin. It's lovely to watch, and his guests included classical celebrities such as Christoph Eschenbach, Sir Simon Rattle, Christian Thielemann and Robert Wilson. He didn't stop there -- he created a sequel, Hope@Home on Tour! In all, he's created almost 70 episodes, which have been streamed more than eight million times. He's also raised tens of thousands of Euros for artists in need. (You can find these and watch them for free on Hope's Facebook page.)

So what could be next? He decided to bring the show to San Francisco, to create six new Hope@Home Next Generation shows with the New Century Chamber Orchestra, a group that has not played since January due to the ever-worsening COVID situation in the United States. Hope has served as Artistic Director of the group since 2018, following violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg's tenure. Here is the first show, which was streamed today:

The shows will be archived and available free of charge for 30 days after the streaming date. The episodes will stream daily at 10 AM PST, from today through Nov. 23, and you can Click here to see the archived episodes.
