Event Details

On the eve of Kristallnacht, hear a preview of new orchestral piece Anne Frank’s Tree, composed by Victoria Bond and performed by a quartet from the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra (full version to premiere in January 2024). Saplings from the chestnut tree in front of Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam were planted all over the world, including by the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis — when it was found that the original tree was suffering from a serious disease, the Anne Frank House decided, with the permission of the owner, to gather chestnuts, germinate them, and donate the saplings. Through a musical meditation on Anne’s tree as a symbol of hope, Bond connects audiences to that sapling.

The composer, Victoria Bond, will join us live and in person for this special performance.

Presented in partnership with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra. Sponsored by Congregation Beth-El Zedeck.
