Blair Children’s Chorus
Mary Biddlecombe, director
and Vox Grata
Anne Frank: A Living Voice
Vox Grata Women’s Choir and Vanderbilt’s Blair Girls Concert Choir will perform Linda Tutas Haugen’s Anne Frank: A Living Voice, accompanied by string quartet. An emotional tour de force, this multi-movement work is based upon selected excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank. Spanning more than two years of hiding in the annex, the texts and music portray a psychological progression from fear and despair to strength and hope. Vox Grata will also perform Daniel J. Hall’s Reflections from Yad Vashem, which was written following the composer’s visit to a children’s Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem. The concert will conclude with several short pieces of atonement. Vox Grata’s founder and conductor is Jeanette MacCallum, and BCC is under the direction of Artistic Director Mary Biddlecombe.
Vox Grata Women’s Choir is unique among choral groups, in that all of its concerts directly benefit the needs of women in the Middle Tennessee area.
This event is free and open to the public. Parking for this event is available for free in West Garage (2500 Children's Way) through the Children's Way entrance
