Oxford Civic Chorus Presents Mendelssohn's Elijah

Monday May 11 at 7:30pm

The Oxford Civic Chorus will present Mendelssohn's Elijah with the Germantown Community Chorus and the Germantown Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Ronald Vernon. The artistic director for the Oxford Civic Chours is Brooke Worth and the artistic director for the Germantown Civic Chorus is Catherine Feazell.

Guest Soloists Jennifer Robinson, Angela Horn-Barrett, Jos Milton, and Bradley Robinson are featured for an extraordinary performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah, an oratorio in English. Mendelssohn uses Biblical episodes to produce intensely dramatic scenes, among the most notable being the resurrection of a dead youth, the bringing of rain to parched Israel through Elijah’s prayers and the bodily ascension of Elijah on a fiery chariot into heaven.

Tickets are available at the UM Box Office for preorder and will be available at the door as well.

Bio's for the soloists and further information about the Germantown Concert, which will be held on Saturday May 9th at 7:00 pm can be found on the Germantown Symphony Orchestra's Website.
