‘ANNELIES’ TO BE FEATURED ON NORTHWEST CHORAL SOCIETY’S APRIL 18 PROGRAM

PARK RIDGE, IL, March 6, 2015 – The Northwest Choral Society (“NWCS”) will present James Whitbourn’s Grammy-nominated Annelies on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation in Evanston.

Anneliesis the first adaptation of the book Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl into a large-scale choral work, and the libretto by Melanie Challenge is based on the teenager’s remarkable and penetrating observations documented in the famous diary written between 1942 and 1944 when Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis in an Amsterdam attic.  “Annelies’ music is both haunting and beautiful,” says NWCS Artistic Director Alan Wellman.


Soprano Josefien Stoppelenburg and a four-piece ensemble will accompany the chorus.  In addition, a complimentary preconcert lecture and discussion of the music will be hosted at 6:45 p.m. by Jonathan Miller, a leading figure in Jewish music in the Chicago area.
