Annelies - February 25, 2017; 7:30pm
Matthew Mehaffey, conducting the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh at Rodef Shalom Temple. Hear the innocence and hope in young Anne Frank’s words in Annelies, a full choral work by British composer James Whitbourn with libretto compiled by Melanie Challenger from The Diary of A Young Girl. Soprano soloist Amelia D’Arcy, the Mendelssohn Choir, and instrumentalists give voice to the girl whose emotional story has inspired millions and who remains the most well-known heroine of the Holocaust. Devastatingly beautiful, the music captures Anne’s youthful innocence amid unthinkable hardship.
