RTÉ PHILHARMONIC’S ZOOM DAY

Sing with the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, and other participants from around the globe, on this special Zoom performance of Mendelssohn’s great ‘Elijah’. SATURDAY 27TH JUNE from 10.30am

Elijah, Op. 70, MWV A 25, is an oratorio by Felix Mendelssohn depicting events in the life of the Prophet Elijah as told in the books 1 Kings and 2 Kings of the Old Testament.

The composer penned most of the libretto himself, spurred on by a commission from the Birmingham Festival to write an oratorio for performance in the city in 1846. It was very much the Messiah of its day: a hugely popular work that absolutely cemented Mendelssohn’s position as one of the greatest composers of sacred music. Two thousand people attended the premiere performance of Elijah, which saw Mendelssohn himself take to the podium at Birmingham Town Hall.

In addition to this being one of the great oratorios, it is one of the great sings for choristers! Do sign up below and come along for a big sing-through performance.

Even if you prefer not to sing along, you will surely enjoy the chance to hear the enormous, dramatic and awe-inspiring choral pieces of this work – all from the comfort of the location of your choice and at No Cost!
