Special Performance of James Whitbourn's "Annelies"
Performed by Bloomington Chamber Singers

Date: April 27th

Time: 4:00pm

Place: United Hebrew Congregation, 540 S 6th St, Terre Haute

Admission: Free 

Bloomington Chamber Singers, in partnership with CANDLES Holocaust Museum, will present a special performance of James Whitbourn's "Annelies" on April 27th at 4:00PM at the United Hebrew Congregation in Terre Haute, IN. The performance is FREE and open to the public. Please join us for this rare and exciting event!

"Annelies," based on The Diary of Anne Frank, originally premiered as a work for chorus and large orchestra; however, the composer has since prepared an additional scoring of the piece as chamber music, replacing the orchestra with a quartet of violin, clarinet, cello, and piano. The story is presented as a series of vignettes, beginning with the Frank family’s plan to go into hiding and ending with their capture and transfer to the concentration camp. It is a tragic, spellbinding, and ultimately uplifting work.

Gerald Sousa, now in his 25th year as Artistic Director of the Chamber Singers, will conduct the choral ensemble, soprano soloist, and instrumentalists.

The program will last approximately one hour and will include brief remarks from representatives of the United Hebrew Congregration and CANDLES Holocaust Museum.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
