Sunday 7 May, 3 pm, at United Community Church – South Building, St. Johnsbury, VT

Elijah depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet taken from I Kings and II Kings of the Old Testament. Although composed in German, it premiered in 1846 at the Birmingham Festival, England, in an English version conducted by the composer – and was an instant audience success. Mendelssohn loved the Baroque music of Bach and Handel and modelled his oratorio after them, while incorporating the lyricism and orchestral color of the Romantic era.

Tickets are available in advance from Catamount Arts for $12 (students $5) or at the door for $15 (students $5).
