Festival Chorale Oregon: Elijah
Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah is a choral masterwork unparalleled in sheer power and drama, promising fiery scenes, gorgeous melodies and rich harmony featuring Robb Harrison, baritone; Kurleen Nowikas, soprano; Allison Swensen, mezzo and Les Green, Tenor. Elijah is big in every sense, with a large orchestra supporting the 100+ choir and four soloists, all of whom, except the title character, playing multiple roles, both evil and saintly — an opera minus the costumes, straight from the Bible. Dr. Solveig Holmquist, Conductor.
Tickets: $20 General, $18 Seniors, $5 Students, available at Festival Chorale Oregon website.
