Mendelssohn’s Elijah

  • Saturday, April 25
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Knowles Memorial Chapel

Mendelssohn’s epic retelling of the Old Testament story of the prophet Elijah is a staple of our repertoire. This piece is considered one of the greatest oratorios, and the work’s sheer power and emotion are underscored by baritone Richard Zeller.
