Halifax Choral Society present Mendelssohn’s Elijah

Price: £19.75

Event description


Elijah: a wild, exciting tale of faith triumphing over despair

A clash between the Old Testament prophet and the priests of Baal, an ancient god of thunder.

Mendelssohn’s thrilling choral masterpiece charts the struggle of the Israelites to endure hardship and find God.

The music, with its turbulent orchestral overture, vividly depicts tempest, earthquake, fire and whirlwind. It also embraces the ‘still, small voice’ of hope and consolation, concluding with the haunting fugue ‘And then shall your Light break forth’.

This special performance, sung in English and conducted by Darius Battiwalla, combines the voices of the Halifax Choral Society and the Leeds Philharmonic Chorus, together with four professional soloists. The concert will be accompanied by the Skipton Building Society Camerata.
