Event Details

Co-sponsored by the Smith College Music Department and MassACDA, a collaborative performance of British composer James Whitbourn's Annelies, an 80-minute oratorio on texts from the Diary of Anne Frank. Libretto by Melanie Challenger, almost entirely in English translation. 8 pm Concert; 7 pm pre-concert lecture in Sweeney Hall by Prof. Joshua Jacobson, noted authority on Jewish music.  Singers from Boston's Coro Allegro and Chorus pro Musica, conductors David Hodgkins & Jamie Kirsch, with Lynn Eustis, soprano, and a quartet of professional instrumentalists.

The first authorized choral setting of the riveting, often profound words of young Annelies "Anne" Marie Frank, as she and her family hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse during the Holocaust. In Whitbourn's score, Anne's interior voice and longings resonate with echoes of the world outside-church bells and popular tunes from the radio mix with instrumental timbres and melodic contours drawn from Jewish traditions. …{A] beautiful, deeply respectful and affecting setting of words that will live forever.”  This will be the first performance of Annelies in western Massachusetts.
