Annelies is a choral work for soprano soloist, choir, and instrumentalists. The libretto is compiled and translated  by Melanie Challenger from The Diary of Anne Frank, with music by James Whitbourn. Annelies is the full forename of Anne Frank, now commonly referred to by her abbreviated forename, Anne. This captivating work is a masterful selection of texts from Anne Frank’s diary in a celebration of the young girl’s affirmation of life. The performance includes Colla Voce (Chamber Choir) directed by Larry Wyatt, soprano Ariana Wyatt, a piano trio (David Ehrlich, Benjamin Wyat, Teresa Ehrlich), and clarinetist Phil Paglialonga.
