Name: The Chorale Bel Canto Performs Annelies: A Grammy-Award-Nominated Oratorio Based on The Diary of Anne Frank
Date: February 10, 2019
Time: 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM PST
Event Description:
Most of us know the Anne Frank story — through her diary, a radio play, television and stage productions, and film. In recent years, a new way to tell her story — Annelies, an oratorio based on her diary — has brought her heroic/tragic story to light through an original choral performance judged so impressive that it was nominated for a Grammy Award. Annelies was first performed in 2005 by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the Home Office and BBC National Holocaust Memorial. Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh attended that performance as well as hundreds of remaining Holocaust survivors in Britain.  Of the concert premiere the following week, London Daily Telegraph music critic Jeffrey Norris wrote, "The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin combined the diverse elements into a coherent context, and the standing ovation signified that the work had had its effect." The Bel Canto Chorale’s appearance is by no means routine among the Temple programs throughout the year. Hearing about the wildfires that devastated the Temple’s Hess Kramer and Gindling Hilltop camps, officials from the group contacted the Temple to offer a performance as a fundraiser.

All proceeds from ticket sales before the concert will benefit the Temple’s Camp Recovery Fund. Ticket prices are — $36 for general admission, $18 for adults 80 and over and students, 18 and under, and $118 for reserved seats, pre-concert lecture, and cocktail reception.
