Millions have read The Diary of Anne Frank and have been struck by the beauty and resilience of the human spirit during horrible and inhumane times. Composer James Whitbourn has created a concert piece for soprano solo, chorus and orchestra inspired by Annelies [Anne] Frank’s famous diary. Annelies is a 75-minute choral work in 14 movements with libretto translated and compiled by Melanie Challenger from The Diary of Anne Frank. This will be a powerful and gripping concert that will be moving for audiences and performers, alike. Our Annelies performances will coincide with Holocaust Remembrance Day 2015 and the National Days of Remembrance.
