Pittsburgh Girls Choir concert: "Anne Frank: Hope and Remembrance"
Pittsburgh Girls Choir, in collaboration with Rodef Shalom Congregation and the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh, presents a concert of “Hope and Remembrance” marking the 90th anniversary of the birthday of Anne Frank on June 12 at Rodef Shalom. The centerpiece of the program, “Anne Frank: A Living Voice” by Linda Tutas Haugen, is an eight-movement work composed for the voices of young women and string quartet, based on text drawn from The Diary of Anne Frank. The program also includes music inspired by the poetry of Thomas á Kempis, Sara Teasdale, Christina Rossetti, and Victor Hugo, the Pirkei Avot, and Psalm 23. It concludes with Nancy Grundahl’s Hebrew Rounds for Peace, based on the folk songs and hymns “Shalom Chaverim”, “Lo Yissa Goy” and “Henay Ma Tov”.
