On Saturday April 25, 2015 at 7:30 PM at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lansdale, PA, The Choristers will present Felix Mendelssohn’s epic Elijah accompanied by a 42-piece professional orchestra. Soloists will be Carole Latimer (Soprano), Suzanne DuPlantis (Mezzo), Robert Chafin (Tenor) and Justin Hopkins (Bass) in the role of Elijah.
Elijah tells a vividly dramatic story with the soloists singing lyrics directed at, and responding to, each other and even the choir. But in virtually all performances of Elijah, the soloists simply stand in a row in front of the audience and face forward. The Choristers will present the work differently. The soloists will be on a small stage and interact with the person or people to whom they are singing. Because three of the soloists have multiple roles, each will wear a different stole to represent the role being sung. Elijah will come alive before your very eyes! Come join us for this special performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
