Description

Featured Soloists:

Charles David Osborne, internationally renowned cantor and composer

Neli Atanasova Andreeva, Bulgarian-born soprano

David Kravitz, celebrated baritone

A Melancholy Beauty is a major choral-orchestral work that brings 300 superb choristers and instrumentalists to the stage, depicting the heroic rescue of 49,000 Jews during the Holocaust. This exciting Oratorio combines classical symphonic music with folk styles and rhythms in an unprecedented way – it is one of a kind!

Presented by Songs of Life, the oratorio was composed by the award-winning Bulgarian composer Georgi Andreev, and traces the events chronologically through the language of music in seven movements. This moving oratorio will be conducted by internationally acclaimed choral director Maestro Henry H. Leck.
