Whitbourn: Annelies

James Whitbourn’s moving cantata sets to music the diary of Anne Frank, a book which became a symbol of hope and goodness amid the brutality of the Second World War.

Our production of this “devastatingly beautiful” work  (Choir and Organ magazine) will be its first performance in Canada.

Enhance your experience by taking in the displays on Anne’s life and legacy at the Kitchener Public Library, 2nd floor from Oct. 21 – Nov. 18. They will be on loan from the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, New York City.

This concert will be performed by the Grand Philharmonic Chamber Singers along with special soloists and instrumentalists:

Natasha Campbell, soprano
Andrew Chung, violin
Barbara Hankins, clarinet
Ben Bolt-Martin, cello
Catherine Robertson, piano

There will be a pre-concert talk at 6:45pm with Carson Phillips, a Holocaust scholar and managing director of the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre in Toronto.

FREE Parking is available on campus in “WHITE PERMIT” lots.
