Annelies Saturday Performance

By Manchester Choral Society (other events)

Saturday, November 13 2021 7:00 PM 9:00 PM EST

The 60-voice Manchester Choral Society performs Whitbourn's "Annelies." The oratorio brings to life the diary written by Annelies Marie Frank between 1942 and 1944 when she and her family hid in an Amsterdam warehouse. From the windows, Anne looked up to the beauty of the sky and downwards to the brutality meted out by the Nazis. The contrasting sights inspired some of the most profound and memorable thoughts in an extraordinary diary, now expressed through the beautiful music of James Whitbourn.
