reSound presents Annelies - Seattle
reSound, a Northwest Chamber Ensemble, is honored to present Annelies, James Whitbourns stunning full-length choral work with libretto compiled and translated by Melanie Challenger from Anne Franks The Diary of a Young Girl. This moving journey as told by Annelies Marie Frank, known to the world as Anne Frank, through the collection of letters and private thoughts recorded in her diary between 1942 and her untimely death in early 1945 at the age of 15 in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, has inspired millions of readers since it was first published in Dutch in 1947 by Annes father, Otto Frank. Melanie Challengers libretto, set to music so carefully and beautifully by James Whitbourn, captures the essence of Annes humor, her fears and observations - and her unwavering hope when facing one of the worst horrors that the modern world has endured.
Featuring soprano soloist Stacey Mastrian, Annelies will be presented on Friday, May 17, 2019, 7:00pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lynnwood, Saturday, May 18, 2019, 7:00pm at Temple B'nai Torah, Bellevue, and on Sunday, May 19, 2019, 3:00pm at Plymouth Church UCC, Seattle.
