In October, Voices of Birralee’s young adult choir Resonance of Birralee will present James Whitbourn’s major choral work, Annelies, based on the diary of Anne Frank.
This performance, featuring guest musicians, and conducted by Paul Holley OAM, will explore the incredibly emotive themes of Anne Frank’s journey while she and her family were hidden in an attic for two years, from 1942 – 1944, during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands.
It’s bound to be an incredibly moving concert, and below we find out why our choristers are enjoying learning this challenging and emotive piece.
Annelies isn’t the only major choral work Resonance of Birralee has undertaken.
In 2015, the choir performed the incredible The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins. This piece took the audience through a journey to discover the major effect of war, including on people, the landscape and animals.
Two concerts of Annelies will be held, at 3pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 14 October 2017, at the Gehrmann Theatre, Brisbane Girls Grammar School.
Book your tickets now for an early bird price of $28 each, with tickets increasing to $38 each after 1 October.
