Mendelssohn: Elijah

Sherborne Festival Chorus
with Sherborne Classical Players

We’re delighted to be part of Sherborne Festival Chorus again for its annual concert in the Sherborne Abbey Festival. This year we perform Mendelssohn’s choral epic Elijah – an intense biblical drama which Mendelssohn brought to life with a powerful score full of rich orchestral colour and stirring choruses. The work is full of drama: earthquake, wind, fire and drought, famine, flood and resurrection. Written for a British audience, it was a huge success at its premiere in Birmingham Town Hall and remains one of the stalwarts of the choral repertoire.
