Take a “Journey to the Past!” Wednesday, November 01, 2017

recommended by Jen Sper and Alissa Ruth, School Choral Music Specialists

Based on the 1997 film, the Broadway musical “Anastasia” transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.

Now available for choir, these new arrangements feel both warmly nostalgic and creatively fresh:
